Anthurium salgarense Croat belongs to the section Belolonchium.  Petioles are erect-spreading, terete, brittle (snapping when being bent sharply), pale green (same color as abaxial side of leaves), smooth. Leaf blades are broadly ovate-sagittate, margins undulate, apex acute, convex, subcoriaceous, weekly glossy above, glossier below, dark green above, much paler below.


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'.
