Anthurium pedatum

Very striking and unusual Anthurium pedatum (Kunth) Endl. ex Kunth is a terrestial herb from section Schizoplacium. Petioles are green and terete. Leaf amina bright green, coriaceous, glossy, pedato-radiate with 9-13 divisions, the denudate costae of the outer segments delimiting a v-shaped sinus.

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'.
