Can anyone (particularly Tom Croat or Lynn Hannon if they are reading this)
help with some IDs for three Anthurium species? They were purchased from
Ecuagenera at a show in London and only two were labelled with possible species
names. If you go to: www.members.aol.com/dgiscience/Anthuriums.html you will see
the three species concerned (you MUST spell Anthurium with an uppercase A, the
site is case sensitive).
On the left is a species which would seem close to A. lentii or
A.ovatifolium, it was labelled as A.grubii, a name I cannot trace. The leaves are about six
inches in length, very thick and leathery and glossy on both surfaces, but
could well be young leaves.
In the centre is a species they labelled as A. variegatum, a good species
name but one which I do not have a description of, I fail to see what is
variegated if it IS this species! The petioles are strikingly red. The leaves are
about ten inches in length.
On the right is an unnamed species which I at first thought was
A.panduriforme but the leaves are more slender and the leaf surface is satiny-shimmering
rather than glossy. The leaves are about ten inches in length. It looks
similar also to A.dragonopterum but the veins seem much further apart.
Any suggestions much appreciated!
