  Anthurium Identification
From: "Anon" kukui at flash.net> on 1999.11.22 at 14:51:11(3850)
There is a site that has a beautiful anthurium that I would like to know
what the Id is on it. If anyone would like to please let me know what it is
I would appreciate it.
See it here and it is half the way down under species #3
Thank you,

Lucy Sampson

Very interesting site, Lucy. Looks a bit like the Anthurium I sent you that
from my brother, doesn't it?? No one's come up with a positive ID yet.

My suggestion on this Anthurium would be A. formosum... However, the owner
says that it has a brown spathe.... A. formosum is more in the pink

That is what I thought and since it was a good picture I thought I would
post it.

This is NOT my genus, but this leaf reminds me of several species I`ve seen
collected near Lita in W. Ecuador, most of them as yet not described!!!

I rather doubt you would find this in the Lita area too much but on the Old
Road to Quito out of Santo Domingo at about 4,000 feet you will find it all
over the place. It seems to be quite prevalent wherever it is. I am speaking
of the thing that has a pink or cream colored spathe. I am not sure what
color has been determined for the one in question. The spathe had tremendous
variability. There is one on the Old Buena
Ventura Road, Colombia at low altitude that looks similar and it too has
great variability in spathe color.

I purchased a
species of Anthurium from a nursery a few years back and have not been able to
identify. It freely self pollinates and produces deep red berries. The berries
germinate and grow readily. I have a picture at
