What I once called Anthurium
whitelockii turned out to be another new species which is now published, namely
A. faustomirandae M. Perez Farrara & Croat
whitelockii is no more, just what we call an herbarium name.

Hi Jared. I just did a search for
"Anthurium whitelockii" on TROPICOS, the Kew's
International Plant Names Index, The Kew Monocot Checklist and the Kew
Checklist of Plant families. None lists the plant as a species. Can
you provide photos as someone might recognize the actual species?

Has anyone grown Anthurium whitelockii. I got the
plant from Rancho Soledad in CA. It seems like it might have rhizomatous growth
that would produce pups. I found at the base of the plant a few of these
rhizomes snaking up and back down in the box (it's in a 24 inch box). Obviously
it is a bird's nest variety.
