I have an unknown Anubias species that has perfectly round leaves, the size of a US quarter: approximately 1" (2.54 cm) in diameter. Has anyone heard of it or possibly know its proper nomenclature?

I want to call it: Anubias barteri var nana 'Round Leaf'. :mrgreen:

I don't know the proper nomenclature, and the nomenclature for the A. barteroi var nana varieties is pretty haphazard, anyway.

It would make some nice demonstration pictures if someone grew a lot of the nana varieties together, so that the differences could be clearly demonstrated.

Sounds a bit big for petite---though I have read (not seen) that they can get big in high light environments. I also not heard of any Anubias species with perfectly round leaves---can you get a picture?

Anubias tilea? I have not seen one in a long time, but I recall that this plant had round leaves. It also exhibited relatively tall, vertical petioles that gave it a very "different" look. Is your plant tall?
