Anthurium peltigerum

A wonderfully unusual Anthurium peltigerum Sodiro is a member of section Digitinervium. Petiole sub-cylindric, sulcate; blade coriacous, glandular punctate and peltate with 3-4 basal veins reaching all the way to the apex and numerous parallel tertiary veins running between the basal veins. Anthurium peltigerum is a one of the most unusual anthuriums due to it's peltate leaf (one of only 3 species). the numerous basal viens with numerous parallel tertiary viens give this species the look of a turtle shell and thus one of the common names of this beautiful plant, the 'turtle shell' anthurium. Clones of this species have been found in Columbia with a red colored spathe, the normal color being green. Growing mainly as an epiphyte, it can sometimes be found growing as a terrestrial.

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'.
