Peter, There are a few anthurium species this could be. Some of the
possibilities are as follows:
A. croatii, A. eminens, A. polyschistum, A. polydactylum, A. kunthii and a
couple others that have palmatly divided leaves where the leaflets are
divided all the way back to the point of petiole attachment giving the leaf
the 'look' of schefflera. Schefflera is a woody plant where anthuriums are
herbaceous. Anthuriums also have a collective vein along or near the margin
of the leaf or leaflets.
I will try to get a couple of these species up on the Anthurium Primer as
soon as i can. may take a couple of weeks.
