Subspecies vs. species?

What I ever want to know is how is a subspecies defined? No botanist I
asked gave me a sharp definition. Or is it only a point of view?
For. example: The Anthurium guayanum Bunting was in the revision of the
Section Pachyneurinum made to ssp. of Anthurium bonplandii.
Yesterday I get Vol.II  Flora of the Venezuelan Guyana. 
There I found that Dr. Bunting who write the Araceae part, made this
Anthurium again to a species?
So what is the accepted name?
The only nice definition I found is from Charles Darwin's Life and
Letter P. 105 "Varieties (ssp.) are only small species"
Can somebody give me a hint?
