    Diagnostic
    Characterized by short internodes, mostly pale-drying, semi-organized cataphyll fibers, narrowly ovate to ovate-lanceolate, blackdrying leaf blades that are semiglossy on the lower surface and have prominent primary lateral veins and a prominently acuminate apex. Anthurium baguense is similar to A. penae Croat, also occuring at the type locality, but A. penae differs in having thicker elliptic blades drying yellowish brown, more obscure primary lateral veins, and intact cataphylls that dry darker brown, rather than turning into pale brown fibers as in A. baguense.
    Distribution
    Known only from Peru, Amazonas Department, Bagua Province (hence the name "baguense").
    Vernacular
    Local Aguaruna name: "campounumia eep".
    General Description
    Terrestrial, 60-80 cm tall; internodes short, 1.5-2 cm diam., cataphylls 7-10 cm long, soon decomposing to pale brown reticulum of fibers. LEAVES; Petioles (18) 34-45 (54) cm long, ca. 5 mm diam., subterete, drying blackened, geniculum 1.5-2.5 cm long, drying blackened; blades ovate-elliptic or rarely lanceolate, 21-32 × 4.3-13.3 cm, narrowly acuminate at apex, acute and weakly attenuate at base, dark green and almost matte above, drying yellow-green to gray-green, slightly paler and semi-glossy below, drying dark gray-brown; midrib narrowly raised above, convex below, drying somewhat darker than surface; primary lateral veins 7-10 per side, departing at 45-55° angle, weakly curved to margin, flat on upper surface, drying weakly raised and less conspicuous than collective veins, convex below; collective veins arising from base, 4-8 mm from margin; interprimary veins often present; tertiary veins weakly raised on drying. INFLORESCENCE erect, peduncle (21) 27-38 (52) cm long, drying 3- 4 mm diam., spathe green to reddish green, lanceolate (1.7) 3.5-5.3 cm × 3-7 mm, acuminate at apex, inserted at ca. 45° angle at base and decurrent for up to 7 mm on peduncle; spadix 2.0-6.3 cm long, weakly tapered toward apex, yellowish green to green. Flowers 4-5 visible per spiral, square, 1.7-2.3 mm long and wide, tepals drying 1-1.2 mm diam., outer margin 2-, or less frequently, 3-4-sided, inner margin concave, style drying button-shaped, 0.5-0.6 mm diam., 0.2 mm thick.
