Dear Steve,

Aloha.  This is definitely an Anthurium...but I could
not tell you off hand what species this is.  I have
something similar but I'll have to walk to the
greenhouse to check if I have a name.  I can clearly
see a geniculum in your photo...sometimes it is
subtle.  Also, this may be an immature plant so all
the characters are not well developed.
