Epipremnum Pinnatum Marble Planet Also known as Monstera Karstenianum Peru. 

Currently, this plant is popularly referred to as Monstera ‘Peru’. However, the cultivator, says it is correctly classified as epipremnum pinnatum marble planet.

So is this plant in fact a monstera or is it an epipremnum? Most people agree that this is a species of monstera. Similarly to Monstera Obliqua, it sends out runners. However, unlike most monsteras, this plant does not get any fenestration. The most similar plant to this is Monstera Pinnatipartita, which does get fenestration. However, another monstera standleyana is another example of a monstera that does not have fenestration. Therefore, just because the cultivator doesn’t want it to be called a Monstera ‘Peru’ doesn’t mean we all have to call it Epipremnum Pinnatum Marble Planet. Especially if it isn’t in fact an epipremnum.

In the end, if you come across epipremnum pinnatum marble planet, just know it is also monstera 'Peru'. There is not genetic difference between the two.
