Anthurium marmoratum

A very elegant  Anthurium marmoratum Sodiro is a member of the section Cardiolonchium. Petiole robust, thick at the base, sheathed, unisulcate adaxially. Leaves blades parchment-like, marbled above with spots of another color, green-glaucous below, elliptic-lanceolate, deeply cordate at the base, more than three times longer than wide. Posterior lobes retrorse, mildly convergent.


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'.
