  [Aroid-l] Mystery Plant

Dear Steve,


I looked at your additional photos...I only saw the
first one earlier. I can add that the lower surface
appears to be glandular-punctate and , if it is
Anthurium longipeltatum, it would belong the Section,
Cordatopunctatum ( sect. nov.) My plant is growing in
strong light and the geniculum becomes more obvious,
although it is still not strongly pronounced...and it
does start where you indicate on your plant's petiole.
The geniculum on my plant also has faint tints of
red...which could be a result of the higher light
levels. It is highly glandular-punctate on the lower
blade surface. The coriaceous texture is also a
feature our plants share. The brown persistent
cataphylls are also present in both. My plant has
bloomed and the inflorescence was erectly held.
