Did a few more searches today for this sp.|
And found it is still a valid species on GRIN ..
Monstera dilacerata K. Koch
Nomen number: 312844
Place of publication: A. C. H. Braun et al., App. gen. sp. nov.
Name verified on: 14-Oct-1987 by ARS Systematic Botanists. Last
Species priority site is: Natl. Germplasm Repository - Miami (MIA).
It is still listed on Tropicos as well . So goes to show you cannot believe everything you hear or read .. Is it just that it has not been updated ?
Or mistaken identity with mature foliage that got this statment ..
"The wantonly and inventively misapplied Monstera dilacerata (K. Koch & Sello) K. Koch is revealed to be a synonym of the Asian Epipremnum pinnatum (L.) Engl., and the obscure Monstera pinnatipartita Schott is neotypified and resurrected for one of the four Costa Rican spp. included under M. dilacerata in Madison's generic revision (Contr. Gray Herb. 207: 1-100. 1977). The redundant combination Monstera dissecta (Schott) Croat & Grayum (1987) is corrected to M. dissecta (Schott) N. E. Br. ex Donn. Sm. (1899). No illustrations. "
I cannot wait for the next revision .
