    Ecology

    Anthurium huberi is found in Venezuela (Bolivar, Amazonas) at an elevation of 2000 to 2150 m in a Premontane wet forest life zone.

    General Description

    Terrestrial herb over granitic substrate, 18-40 cm tall; stems erect to creeping; internodes shorter than wide or about as long as broad, 1-1.5 cm diam.; cataphylls 2.5-4.5 cm long, drying reddish brown, the uppermost intact, weathering partly to reddish fibres lower down, staying tight to stem along their length. Leaves with petiole 4.5-16.5 cm long (averaging 10.7 cm long), drying 1-2 mm in diam., terete, drying at least weakly sulcate adaxially and brownish and conspicuously granular-pustulate throughout, finely costate and warty-verrucose throughout; geniculum 7-10 mm long, drying slightly thicker and darker than the remainder of the petiole; blade moderately coriaceous, narrowly ovate-cordate to triangular-ovate, acuminate at apex, prominently lobed at the base, sinus spathulate to narrowly V-shaped, arcuate on younger blades, sometimes completely closed with lobes overlapping in dried specimens, 5.4-11.8 cm long, 3.5-5.3 cm wide (averaging 8.8 x 4.3 cm), 1.5-2.7 longer than wide (averaging 2 long); upper surface dark green, semiglossy, sometimes glaucous, eglandular, drying greyish yellow-green; lower surface slightly paler, drying greyish green to yellowish brown, glandular punctate (glands 0.1-0.2 mm diam., drying dark brown); midrib weakly raised and somewhat paler than surface upon drying, somewhat angular on upper surface, con vex on lower surface; primary lateral veins 4-6 per side, scarcely more conspicuous than interprimaries, arising at a 55o to 70o angle, moderately straight to the collective veins; collective veins arising from the base, extending to the apex, very close to margin at the tip of the blade; basal veins 2-3 per side, prominently looped upward and merging with the margin. Inflorescence erect, at least as high or higher than the leaves, peduncle 8.5-19.3 cm long (averaging 14.5 cm long), drying 1-1.5 mm diam., becoming more tapered toward spadix; spathe light green, linear-lanceolate, 1.6-2.5 cm long, 0.3-0.9 cm wide (averaging 1.9 0.6 cm), acuminate at apex, rounded at base; spadix dark reddish green to purplish, matte, 1.5-3.5 cm long (averaging 2.7 cm long), drying 3-5 mm diam. Flowers 3-5 visible per spiral, drying 2.4-2.6 mm long, 1.6-2 mm wide, the outer margin bluntly triangular, inner margin broadly rounded, stamens maroonish brown, held at surface of tepals, the thecae broadly ovate, slightly divaricate. Berry colour unknown; immature berries developing at least some times only in lower 3/5 of spadix.
