  Anthurium watermaliense Hort. ex L.H. Bailey &

Interesting. I would have assumed it was from someplace in
Suriname, but apparently, not so.

On the other hand, there are valid species named after where
they were first noticed rather than from their native range.
Like the greenhouse flatworm, Bipalium kewense. It is from
the former French Indochina, but was first noticed by
science in Kew Gardens.

Question for ExoticRainforest: does the suffix Hort. always
mean it was a horticultural name? Because I was under the
impression that it applies to some valid species which, at
the time they were named, had been in cultivation long
enough that their wild origins were not remembered.

Good question Jason! I'm trying tolearn the same answer but that had been my premise.
