Anthurium flavolineatum

A wonderful, very elegant-looking Anthurium flavolineatum Sodiro from section Belolonchium is a herbaceous evergreen and a terrestrial species. Petioles tinged purple-violet, obtusely flattened and obtusely and deeply sulcate. Leaf blades are subcoriaceous, dark green and matte subvelvety above, moderately paler and weakly glossy below.


The genus name Anthurium is derived from Greek ánthos "flower" + ourá "tail" + New Latin -ium -ium . A very  literal translation of this would be 'flowering tail'.
