            The true A. longipeltatum has black glandular punctations on the lower surface.  If it does not have these it can’t be that species.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Two Anthurium in need of ID - redux


Hi all,

Thanks for all your help so far!

Anthurium #1 definitely has "D" shaped petioles.  The ID of A. cerrobaulense seems closest to a match for my plant.

Anthurium #2, however, doesn't seem to match A. longipeltatum although some characteristics do match.  The infructescence is not pendent, but remains upright.  There is a large swollen geniculum between blade and petiole.  The leaf blades are quite stiff, like stiff non-corrugated cardboard, or like the leaves of Clusia, especially when grown under poor conditions (which mine was before I obtained it).

Any other suggestions?
