Anthurium wendlingeri

Very difficult to source, very rare and very stunning Anthurium wendlingeri G.M.Barroso is a pendent epiphyte from the section Porphyrochitonium. Leaves are spreading-pendent; petioles terete, leaf blades oblong, moderately thick, up to 80 cm long, acuminate at a apex, round to truncate at base; upper surface weakly velvety, obscurely and sparsely glandular-punctate, lower surface semiglossy, sparsely glandular-punctate.

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'.
