I have that too .. it was identified as A. amnicola. I wonder if andraeanum is a synonym.

Anne,
I did a quick Google search and I think it is A. amnicola, but not any that had the same color as ours.

Could they be a dilute version of the "peppermint" anthurium?

Well I dug around on Google for a little while...a dilute version of Peppermint or Shibori might be possible,.....I don't remember where I got mine even.

Shibori & Peppermint look identical to me .. I'm fairly new to Anthuriums so I'm probably not seeing characteristics to differentiate the two.

I found some info. on Anthurium 'Peppermint Gemini' which I just added to our db. It seems pretty close to yours mj. I lifted the flower color description from the patent document which states it's a hybrid Anthurium which originated in FL.
Pink and white mottled spathes with white and yellow spadix.
