Anthurium rubioanum Croat is a stunning, pendent Anthurium with elongated, quilted foliage. It is an epiphyte, its petioles are sharply D-shaped, with thin erect low margins, medium green and matte. Leaf blades are thinly coriaceous, matte, moderately bicolorous, dark green above. Primary lateral veins are quilted-sunken.
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'.
