Anthurium andreanum Linden, III Hort. 24:43, t. 271 (1877). Writing of his discovery a year later Andre remarked, 'it is without doubt one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful, of all my discoveries in South America,' (Ill. Hort. 24:43, 1877). He declined to give a precise locality for the plants in fear that other collectors would set out after them, this probably at the insistence of Linden, who jealously guarded his horticultural monopolies.
