  [Aroid-l] Does this Anthurium look familiar?
From: exotics at hawaii.rr.com (Windy Aubrey) on 2008.03.10 at 20:15:25(17158)

First off I would like to thank Adam, Denis, Tom, Marcus and Eduardo for their input.

I received some informative emails privately regarding this plant and I did some investigating. From this I found out, so far, that this Anthurium in question was originally in the collection of Dorothy Henkle, presumably collected in Brazil.

I have learned that it is in the section Urospadix. I believe this species is currently being described. There is another species, Anthurium jureianum, in the Urospadix section that is very similar, except for it's leaf is peltate.

At the time I started this thread our plant did not have a spathe, but since has produced one.
I have attached some additional pictures including the spathe, in hope that these images will confirm an identification.

Thanks again,
