Anthurium lancea

A very dramatic looking Anthurium lancea Sodiro belongs to section Belolonchium. Petioles are narrowly rounded abaxially, bluntly sulcate adaxially. Leaf blades are cordate, subcoriaceous, semiglossy, moderately bicolorous.

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'.
