Philodendron Lynette is actually the species Philodendron campii Croat published In the International Aroid Society journal Aroideana volume 27 pages 38-60, in 2004 by aroid botanist Dr. Tom Croat of the Missouri Botanical Garden.

The name Lynette appears to have first appeared in A.B. Graf's Exotica 3 in 1963. Where he arrived at that name is unknown. It was once considered a hybrid of Philodendron elaphoglossoides Schott and Philodendron wendlandii Schott (Bailey & Bailey, 1976) but the species is not a hybrid and is often found in portions of South America.

One of the purported parents, P. wendlandii is restricted to Central America and P. elaphoglossoides is a rather rare species that does not occur within the natural range of Philodendron campii .

Philodendron campii ranges from Brazil (Amazonas) to southern Colombia (Amazonas, Vaupes, Putumayo, Nariño), through Ecuador (Napo, Pastaza, Sucumbíos, Morona-Santiago) and into northern Peru (Amazonas, Huanuco, Loreto, San Martin). Most collections have been made in Ecuador. Although Mr. Graf did a great service to tropical plant collectors the information in his books has often been found by aroid botanists to be inaccurate.

You can look up Dr. Croat's article on the species by doing a search on the International Aroid Society website: http://www.Aroid.org
