your plant with divided leaves looks like something I'm growing... which I think
is Monstera subpinnata .
... Looking it up in the TROPICOS database (Missouri Botanic Gardens)...it's a
species that's been collected in Peru and Bolivia, and also Ecuador & Brazil
(Acre). Maybe you could have a look under its 'specimen list' for this
species? as some of the (more recent) specimen records have field notes that
describe fine details - e.g. of stem, veins, colour, texture - which you could
compare with your own plant.
(btw. if you haven't used that database before - it's at
It's quite a good resource for nomenclature - for checking names & classification
- & has many habitat pics & herbarium specimen records for aroids collected in C.
& S. America )
