I have some that is similar; it came from Tom Barr (I think) a couple years ago and he called it variegated anubius (nana, in the case of mine).

I have an Anubias nana, which looks as though someone had spattered white
paint on some of the leaves. Would someone who knows about Anubias, please
look at this picture:


and tell me the correct name for it. Thanks.

According to an e-mail I received from Derek J. Arthur, the plant I have is Anubias barteri var nana 'Marble.' I have found a picture of a plant of that name on PlantGeek.com, which matches mine exactly. (I may even have bought it there.) See:


The few pictures I've found of the Variegated plant seem to have a stronger rib pattern, although that may just be the lighting. Could they be two names for the same plant?
