The name Anthurium leuconeurum has been in use by horticulturists since 1862 when a plant, believed to have been collected in southern Mexico by Auguste Boniface Ghiesbrecht, was described by the French botanist Charles Lemaire. The plant apparently flourished in European botanical garden hothouse collections for a period of about seven decades. A number of herbarium collections were prepared and placed in herbaria at Kew Gardens, Geneva, Paris and elsewhere; most of these collections were made before 1895. The last such herbarium collection I've seen was prepared in 1935 at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, by L. W. Carrisso and deposited at the Kew Herbarium.
