Philodendron billietiae was already discovered in 1981 by Frieda Billiet and brought to flower in the Botanical Garden Meise, Brussels, Belgium. During a visit by Tom Croat it was determined that it was a new species, but the deposited herbarium cover of the flower was not sufficient for a diagnosis, as it originated from culture. It took Frieda Billiet another 5 trips to French Guyana to find the plant again. On the 5th trip together with Tom Croat, more specimens were finally found in flower, and now a description was possible, which Tom Croat published in 1995, 14 years after the species was discovered.
