Dear All:


            I actually never saw Jared’s image.  I only know that what I was once calling Anthurium whitelockii turned out to be Anth. faustomirandae.  Could someone send me this image that Jared originally posted?

Jared, I've been studying a highly magnified copy of the the photo you posted of "whitelockii" and it appears there may be pubescence (hair) on the petioles.  In a few specimens the petioles appear terete (round) but in others some appear to be canaliculate (C shaped).  Can you verify this?  And if possible, closeup photos of the upper and lower surfaces of the blade as well as the roots and petioles would be of interest.

Dear All,

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.
