As you have already found out, IDing Anubias by using the hobby books is
difficult at best.  Cultivars are making this more difficult yet.  Karren
Randal had a pretty good article posted on the internet about different
types of Anubias.  If I had an address, I'd tell you, but I don't.  Most of
the info that I've seen, both internet and hobby books and magazines, leaves
the id open to interpretation.  Some folks say that you can tell by the
flower.  If you find info on the blooms, I'd like to hear about it.  I have
flowered several really different looking Anubias plants and I always get
peace lily looking blooms of different sizes.  Anubias plants will flower
submerged with the flower either in or out of the water.

There really isn't an easy answer as far as I know.

Good Luck,
