  [Aroid-l] Does this Anthurium look familiar?

Hi Windy,

I bought this plant from Tropiflora years ago that was tagged as A.
rzedowskii, but quickly learned it didn't match the description of the
true A. rzedowskii:

Back then, I also asked on this list for help in identifying this plant.
The only helpful response I remember was from Dewey Fisk (couldn't find
it in the archives, may have been a private email) saying that this
plant had appeared for sale from time to time under this name, and that
they all originated directly from a grower in Hawaii. Unfortunately the
nursery was unable to provide any helpful details on this plant's origin.

Attached is a picture of my plant that sadly dropped dead for unknown
reasons the year I purchased it. It was a very distinctive plant, with
the overlapping lobes and thick bulate leaves held upward on long
petioles. I have not seen this plant available anywhere since then, but
hope to come across another to add to my collection.

Hope this was of some help.
