I'm not certain but I think these two are the same plant with the correct listing being:
Blushing Philodendron (Philodendron 'Imperial Red')

And, this one should be deleted:

edited to say: The correct listing should read Philodendron erubescens 'Imperial Red'

Thanks Lin. I've merged the entries into Blushing Philodendron (Philodendron 'Imperial Red') and added Philodendron erubescens 'Imperial Red' and Philodendron erubescens 'Red Imperial' as Also sold as names.

While this Philodendron is listed on some sites as P. erubescens, elsewhere it is listed as a possible hybrid involving P. erubescens and The plant patent states
The new cultivar was discovered growing among several hundred random seedlings obtained in approximately September of 1977 from Bamboo Nursery, Opapka, Fla. The plants were approximately 3-4" long with roots, but not rooted in soil, and were indistinguishable one from the other at the time of purchase. The parentage of the new cultivar was not known at the time of acquisition, nor is it now known.
