Flowers 2.2-2.3 × 2.1-2.2 mm, 3 visible per spiral; lateral tepals 1 mm wide.
    Distribution
    Anthurium apanui is endemic to the type locality in northern Perú at 550 m in Tropical wet forest (T-wf) or Premontane rain forest (P-rf) life zones (Holdridge 1971).
    Diagnostic
    Characterized by oblong-elliptic, bicolorous blades and a green spadix with only three flowers per spiral. Anthurium apanui is similar to A. tunquii Croat (also published in this manuscript), but the latter species has more, closer primary lateral veins, longer cataphylls, and a red spadix.
    Habitat
    Tropical wet forest (T-wf) or Premontane rain forest (P-rf) life zones (Holdridge 1971).
