  Anthurium identification
From: pascal vieu p_vieu at yahoo.fr> on 2002.10.10 at 15:14:36(9514)
Hi all,

Would somebody have the kindness of identifying the Anthurium sp in this
directory :
Anthsp xx.jpg are pictures of an Anthurium that lost its name. It may be A.
gracile (we could not find the plant but our database still gives this name).

The others pics are Anthurium martinicense and Amorphophallus titanum.

Dear Pascal,
I think the pictures you have are of Anthurium gracile (Rudge) Lindl. I was
reviewing the Revision of the Genus Anthurium (Araceae) of Mexico and
Central America. Part I: Mexico and Middle America of Dr. Thomas Croat, and
the plant of the pictures are very similar to the caracteristics of the

Dear Pascal,

Anthurium martinicense is a synonym of Anthurium acaule. The other
species indeed is Anthurium gracile. It produces seeds so easily that it
sometimes germinates and devellops in unexpected places.

With best regards,
