Anthurium recavum Croat is a member of Anthurium section Calomystrium and is characterised by its terrestrial or epiphytic habit, persistent, intact cataphylls, terete petioles, narrowly ovate-sagittate and moderately glossy blades with prominently quilted-sunken primary lateral veins and a narrow sinus as well as by its purplish spathe and rosy or purple spadix.
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'.
