Although there are many names published as species in the genus Monstera there are currently only 35 accepted species names. One was only recently published and does not show up on some of the current data bases. According to the Kew site CATE Araceae these are the accepted species excluding variation names. I have included Monstera barrieri which is the most recently published species found in French Guiana.

Please note the name "Monstera friedrichsthalii is not included. That is a common name used by collectors but is not a valid name since it is a synonym of Monstera adansonii.

I am now aware of new work being done on the genus Monstera and more species may be deemed as accepted in the future.
