Hi Geoffrey,

     What about Anthurium willdenowii? Those kind of leaves, together with 
those lilac-mauve fruits are both notewhorty features of A. willdenowii. As 
far as I remember, this species occurs in Trinidad and Tobago Islands, as 
well as in other Islands in West Indies.

                          I hope it helps,
