Well, my A. warocqueanum is close to black! Does that
make it undescribed? I don't think so! I'd say this is hype and
there's a ton of it on eBay!

Is it hype? Honestly I can't say, perhaps Tom will
comment but he and I have had conversations about color variations and they
don't add up to "undescribed" species. However, the same seller is
selling an Anthurium regale which he claims can grow 6 foot
leaves! Now I thought mine was big with a 30 inch leaf and Doc Darian had
grown a whopper with a 48 inch leaf! Either this seller has not read any
scientific books or is using some darn good fertilizer! Perhaps just a bit
of hype? Perhaps.

I have not seen the plant in question.
