There is a space missing after JHFS+
BAD : sudo diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk2 GPT JHFS+Anon R
GOOD: sudo diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk2 GPT JHFS+ Anon R

There is a space in the label as well so the argument needs to be quoted or the space escaped with a backslash.

diskutil erasedisk JHFS+ 'Anon R' /dev/disk2

Nope, the R is not part of the volume name (yes syntax is odd)

sudo diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk2 GPT JHFS+ 'Your USB Name' R

if you have spacing when naming the USB use single quotes ' ' just like above.
