Mélinon was a French botanist who
collected in French Guiana between 1862 and 1865 according to the British Museum site dealing with botanical
authors. Tropicos correctly uses the name Philodendron melinonii for this
Change of topic (and please note that I am
not referring to these two alternative spellings offered here). This may be a
time to comment on Tropicos as a source of information. They are very good on
names (no one is infallible) but only set out to list all the names that have
been used – in the tradition of Index Kewensis - so cannot be used to
verify which of several synonyms is to be adopted. This comment is irrelevant
to the question, but is something to bear in mind if looking for an
authentication of a name where two synonyms are floating around.
