does not appear to be Anthurium hookeri which has scalariform veins
(ladder-like) extending between the primary lateral veins. You can
definitively prove it one way or the other though. If your plant has tiny
black glandular dots on the lower surface and/or if it has supervolute vernation
(rather than involute vernation) it is A. hookeri. If it lacks either it
is a member of Anthurium section Pachyneurium series

Tom, No black glandular dots, but since I don't have any leaves opening at the
moment I'm not sure whether the leaves are involute or not. I think that they
are but I will keep a look out. Is there a list of

A list of Pachyneurium????? Harry, Tom wrote "A Revision of Anthurium
Section Pachyneurium" and it was published as "Annals of the Missouri
Botanical Garden Volume 78, Number 3 1991".... I am sure that Tom has some
copies available... I don't know the price... But shoule be in the $35.

I can not tell you what species it is but I have the same thing growing
on my bench. I got it from Fairchild Gardens at their annual Ramble Sale
..whenn I tried to find out what species it was from the numbers on the
tag, I was told that those numbers were meaningless. The seedlings had
been donated by one of their volunteers who work there. As to whether he
did not know the identity of the species or its origins, I have not yet
determined as I haven't made time to look him up.

This I can say it is a beautiful species with short petioles and nice
form. I have been reluctant to propagate it without a name. I do not
think it is Anth. "hookeri" var. Alicia. My recollection of the tissue
cultured variety Alicea was that it was a tall Pachyneurium (perhaps A.
schlectendallii) type with more or less flat leaves. Not this more
elegant, more compact birdsnest type with leaf bases that curve upward
and in.

Title: RE: Another Anthurium

Dear Harry:

Anthurium sect. Pachyneurium species are a bitch to figure out if you don't know where they come from but some are pretty distinctive and I would be happy to try to key this out for you if you could send a leaf, inflorescence and a cataphyll. I do sell a revision. I can't find my price list at the moment but it is no way near $35 any more.
