Nice picture!
This black spathed anthurium is not an A. watermaliense. the spathe is too broad and the spadix is curved in a relaxed sort of way. This is perhaps the famous "Black Anthurium", a member of the Calomystrium Group with the andraeanum types. It originates high in the cloud forests of the Andes Mountains in Colobia and does not do well in  sub tropical & tropical sea level environments. I've heard it referred to as Anthurium rubrum although I have never seen it described as such in an article. It will hybridize with other calomystrium types if you can get it to grow in your greenhouse and flower, alas I can not.

The best known Anthurium species with almost a black spathe
is A. watermaliense, but inflorescences on the web are variable.
Type the name in Google picture search, you'll find identical plants and much different ones.
For example the inflorescence in the IAS page differs very much
