|this is at fairchild - so there could've been a label... not even sure where it was and if i'll find it again.|
the veining is very delicate and intricate. i looked at a lot of pics. looks a bit like a. magnificum, but with many more minor veins.

|That's a real beauty. A. magnificum is supposed to be easy to ID because the petioles are square, quadriangular in cross-section, near the leaf.|

|now that i know about petioles i'll take pics of them too. i just hope i can find it again to take more pics!|
i am going over the whole list of anthuriums in the conservatory and looking each one up and googling to try and find a match...
here's sev pics together on hawaiian bot garden site for comparison. a. magnificum seems to have the finest and most veins.

|m-m...i'll be looking to locate it ..in miami rather soon ;). it's somewhere in butterfly house or in tropical fruits house, or in conservatory...if it's still alive i'll be sure to hover and even ask attendants (though they're just volunteers and differ greatly in knowledge of plants).|
