Does anyone know this Philodendron?

Pete, I just wanted to thank you again for pointing me towards Philodendron pusillum as per my request on Aroid l for an ID on the species.  Eduardo helped a great deal and I've created a brief page on the plant.  The tag is long lost and I'm not even certain where it came from but it does appear to be rare in collections according to Eduardo's material.  I've tried to include photos that match to his and Josef's description but if you see anything wrong please do point it out.  I've also sent Eduardo the link so he can tell me if he sees anything wrong.

I know I often get long winded in my own zeal to learn and scare people away from reading my pages so I've intentionally kept this one brief.  These pages are really just my personal notes to myself and I use them to remind myself of what I've been taught by guys like you, Eduardo,Tom and others.  So thanks again for your help.

If anyone on this forum has managed to see an inflorescence on this specimen and have a photo I'd love to be able to use it, especially if you know what the fruit color is.  That info was not included in the description and I'm not certain if it is known.

I've had this Philo for at least three years, likely more, and have no idea what it might be or where it originated.  I've taken the plant to Dr. Croat in St. Louis and he appears to believe it is fully grown but has no idea what it might be.  I've also sent these photos to several aroid botanists with no results.   Both the blades and the pot in the photo are approximately 15 cm (6 inches) and the entire plant is small.  I grow it in moderately bright light but have never seen an inflorescence.  I've included photos of both the adaxial and abaxial blade surfaces (upper and lower), the petioles and stem.  If any of you grow it or know where it originated I would appreciate the info.
