    General Description
    Slow-growing epiphyte; stem spreading-ascending; internodes short, c. 1 cm long, 2–4 cm diam.; cataphylls 12–13(–20) cm long, persisting as semi-organised redbrown fibres, especially near apex, the fibres mostly parallel. Leaves erect-spreading; petiole 16–30 cm long, subterete, sharply sulcate adaxially and margins drying bluntly acute, sulcus c. 3 mm wide; geniculum 2–3 cm long, 1.5 × diam. of petiole, tinged brown to orange; blade 35–62 cm long, (9.2–)15–21 cm wide, 3.6 × longer than wide, 1.5–2.2 × longer than petiole, coriaceous, elliptic to weakly oblanceolate-elliptic, acute to weakly acuminate at apex, acute at base, dark green and moderately glossy above, moderately paler and semiglossy, glandular-punctate below, margin turned downward; midrib narrowly rounded and slightly paler above, narrowly rounded and moderately paler below; primary lateral veins 13–14 pairs, arising at 50–60° angle in upper half of blade, to 60–80° angle in lower half of blade, weakly quilted-sunken, raised below, concolorous and slightly less prominent than the collective veins above, narrowly rounded, darker and ± equal to the collective veins below; collective veins arising from very near the base, the lower portion almost fused with the midrib in the lower 1 cm, two major collective veins arising from base of blade and with 1st (outermost) meeting margin in lower 1/3 of blade, the 2nd forming the main collective veins, 8–15(–25) mm from the margins, moderately loop-connecting and equal in prominence to the primary lateral veins. Inflorescence erect-spreading; peduncle 25–29.5 cm long, 8–10 mm diam., green, spreading and slightly turned upwards; spathe 14–16 cm long, 2.2–3 cm wide, dull to medium green, lanceolate, acuminate at apex, decurrent at base, spreading at 90° angle then curved downward with the apex held next to petiole, margins rolled outward, drying dark brown, moderately coriaceous; spadix 30–37 cm long, 8–13 cm diam. at base, 6–12 mm diam. midway, slightly tapered, c. 7 × 9 mm at flattened apex, grey-green, at 1 cm from apex, 5.5 mm diam. at 1 cm from tip, drying dark brown, matte. Flowers c. 0.4–2.8 mm long, 1.4 mm wide, 9–10 visible per spiral; tepals smooth when fresh, drying minutely granular, lateral tepals 1.4 mm wide, the outer margins obtusely and broadly 2-sided to broadly rounded; anthers 0.4 mm long, about as broad as long,  emerging weakly at the level of the tepals then retracted below the level of the tepals after anthesis; pollen cream-coloured; berries c. 4–8 mm long, 5–6 mm diam., early-emergent, obovoid, pale red; seeds c. 2–3 mm long.
    The species is a member of Anthurium sect. Porphyrochitonium and is characterised by its short internodes, persistent cataphyll fibres, sulcate petioles, usually oblongelliptic blades, which are glandular-punctate on the lower surface with the collective veins rather remote from the margins, as well as by its long-tapered greenish spadix with retracted stamens.
    Endemic to Colombia, known only from the type locality near Las Animas in Chocó Department.
    Tropical rain forest life zone.
