Anthurium regale

Definitely very appropritely named, Anthurium regale Linden is a terrestial species from section Cardiolonchium.  Petiole is subterete, deeply sulcate adaxially. Leaf blades subcoriaceous, velvety, deep green above, paler below, cordate-oblong, narrowed gradually from the middle toward the apex, cuspidate-acuminate lengthwise. Basal lobes conspicuous.


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'.
