Please DON`T take my suggestion a ''final'' solution. I usually try to stay out of these discussions on I.D.`ing store-bought plants, but this one is interesting now that I have seen a photo. It is not a ''birds nest" type, and is NOT in my opinion a pure species. The up-turned posterior lobes of the leaves which create the impression of a ''cup"" are NOT like A. fausto., which has a HUGE, almost flat cordate leaf, VERY 'hard-textured'. Steve will have photos on his site of a pure A. faustomir.
I`d like to see a photo of an inflorescence on this (Jared`s) plant, as the bloom on a pure A. fausto. is large, and has a cup-shaped large spathe which spreads over the spadix like a roof, and a very short peduncle/stem. Jared`s plant might exibit a different spathe/peduncle which may offer hints as to the plant`s possibly mixed parentage.

>>This is the photo sent to me when I purchased the plant. I could take another and send it, but I won't have a chance until Monday or Tuesday.
The leaves are NOT glossy. They quickly turn coriaceous, it is fairly large (I assume a bird's nest Anth.).
I will record more specific specs when I have the plant in front of me. This is turning out to be quite the challenge to ID.
