I went to the photo files and found some that look similar. Most of the photos are of house plants and your plant is growing in a garden setting - they will always look different.

It looks like Philodendron tenue.

cayenne, French Guyana

DTG and Tropicbreeze: thanks for your help.
I have Philodendron billieteae ( common in french Guiana) .
It doesn't look like at all with "my " P.
Your picture could be some kind of P. erubescens ;
until proof to the contrary i'll considered "my " P. as Philodendron tenue.
