I received this response this morning from Dr. Eduardo Gonçalves in Brazil.  It appears this specimen is likely to be Philodendron pusillum from Colombia.  After I read Eduardo's note I checked the base of the stem and there is some reddishness.  I've attaached the photo.  I've also read his and Josef's published description and the plant is a very good match.

Thanks a bunch Pete!  It is great to have guys like you, Tom  and all our other botanists on the forum to help solve these mysteries!

Dear Steve,

 

         I really think this could be P.pusillum, from Colombia. Usually it is reddish at the base, but considering it is cultivated, a little change is expected.  There is another species I described (P. humile), from Brazil, that is also small (inflorescences are up to 7 cm long) but has cordate leaf-blades.

 

                                               Very best wishes,

 

                                                                    Eduardo.
