Anthurium reflexinervium

The most quilted of them all, Anthurium reflexinervium Croat is an epilithic plant. Stems are usually less than 15 cm long,  petioles are broadly and sharply triangular, sometimes sharply D-shaped, flattened, sometimes with a medial rib adaxially. Leaf blades are coriaceous to subcoriaceous, broadly oblanceolate-elliptic, acute at apex, obtuse to shallowly cordate at base, moderately to strongly undulate; upper surface matte to semiglossy, dark green, lower surface semiglossy, paler; both surfaces strongly bullate and quilted.


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'.
