I have an A. triphyllum that has white veins, but don't know if this is also
known as 'Mrs. French'.  White-veined leaves are apparently not that
uncommon as more than one person has told me they have also seen this
in the wild.

I also have an A. triphllum that has black spots on it, which comes back
year after year with the same spots on the leaves.

I have pics of these two plants on my web page at:
as well as what might be a real variegated leafed form of A. triphyllum.
