Dear Derek:
	You are correct.  I deliberately shorted the name to faustmiranae
because Fausto is a shortened version of Faustino and I preferred to make
the name as long as possible.

Just to get the record straight for those of us dealing with the plant, the
name was published as Anthurium faustomirandae (in the journal Novon11: 88)
although it presumably commemorates Faustino Miranda. That is the way it was
published and that is the spelling that should be used.
Hate to be pedantic, but a couple of variations in spelling are already
floting around, and pretty soon, if history is any guide, some of the
Florida nurseries who have got hold of it are going to be claiming that
their plant is indeed a diffeent and vastly superior species. Excuse me if I
sound tired of the name game as the industry plays it! Derek
