Begonia U074

This small trailing begonia has ruby red stems and nice speckled leaves.  The underlying leaf color is a greenish-purple, and speckling is a much lighter silvery-green.  Leaves stay around an inch and maintain nice compact growth across the substrate.  U074 has been tentatively identified as Begonia nigritarum, however, there does seem to be some variation between the two.
