     CORRECTION:  Your pictures look like anth. fendleri, not wagnerianum. that's the problem of replying to emails late at night without checking the books first. Sorry for any confusion.

Hi Jeremy,
     Your pictures look just like anth. wagnerianus, which seeds itself with purple berries having white bases. A nice veiny leaf.  Do take a picture of the new leaf before it uncurls. True hookeri will have just one curl, one side wrapped around the other. All pachyneurium types will have two curls, with each side wrapped around itself, like a figure 8 in cross section.  I find it too hard to remember if convolute or involute means 1 or 2 curls.  So, if your plant has 2 curls, it is probably wagnerianus.

Hi Steve and Listers,

From your descriptions (and not having done the proper ID work myself!) it sounds like we've got A. hookeri here at the Botanic Gardens Melbourne. I've attached pics of two different individuals, and would love confirmation or denial by those in the know!

And a quick, very large thank you to those 'in the know' who do post on this list - to have sound  taxonomic, horticultural and often extremely amusing information poured straight into my inbox is a privilege beyond measure.

Many thanks,

Jeremy P
Melbourne, Australia

When the species name comes from a surname ending with "r" there is always one "i" - hookeri, bakeri, walkeri one "i" 
also when the name ends on "i" or "y" beccarii, karwinskyi.
In other cases there are always 2 "i" - rehmannii, wallisii.
And when te name ends on "a" like Matsuda, the species name is matsudae.

Thanks for the input.  Shortly after I published that note Dr. Croat, Julius and Joep Moonen all checked my text and gave additional input.  After close to 10 years of growing specimens I thought to be Anthurium hookeri, (or Anthurium hookerii, as they seem to love to spell it) I am amazed I've never discovered this discrepancy before.  But, even more amazing, is all the information on the internet, and eBay, which continues to show and offer "Anthurium hookeri" with red berries and ruffled leaves.

 Hello  Steve, 
I know very well David Scherberich because he  determined a lot of  plants for the botanical garden of Nancy. He is an excellent botanist!
We have in culture Anthurium hookeri and it has indeed white berries.
