The only genera of Araceae that I'm aware about the presence of
fenestrations are: Monstera (as you already know), Dracontioides (a water
dweller from Brazil), Raphidophora, Epipremnum and maybe some Anchomanes.
I have never seen a fenestrated Philodendron and I think they don't exist
at all. Some pictorial books of horticulture (e.g. Exotica) usually show a
young Monstera deliciosa identificated as "Philodendron pertusum" and I
think it can confuse a lot of people.
