Hi all

Epipremnum aureum is the correct name for the plant cultivated as Golden
Pothos, Devil's Ivy, etc. The correct name and synonomy is:

Epipemnum aureum (Linden & André) G.S. Bunting, Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 50
 (1964, '1963') 28

Epipremnum pinnatum (L.) Engl. cv. Aureum (see Nicolson, Allertonia 1 (1978)
 Pothos aureus Linden & André, Ill. Hort. 27 (1880) 69 - Scindapsus aureus
 & André) Engl. in Engl., Pflanzenr. 37 (IV.23B) (1908) 80 - Rhaphidophora
 (Linden & André) Birdsey, Baileya 10 (1963, '1962') 159 - [Rhaphidophora
 (Linden & André) Furtado, Gard. Bull. Singapore 20 (1964) 379, comb.
 Epipemnum aureum (Linden & André) G.S. Bunting, Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 50
 (1964, '1963') 28 - Type: Ill. Hort. 27 (1880) pl. 381.
Epipremnum mooreense Nadeaud,  J. de Botanique 13 (1899) 6 - Type: Nadeaud

Epipremnum pinnatum is a different and separate, although related, species.
It has a HUGE synonomy, which I won't bore you all by posting here, but can
send to anyone who is interested to see it.

I don't know of anyone presently growing E. falcifolium, which is an endemic
species in Borneo.
