The Anubias barteri var. angustifolia can be, in error, found in stores labeled as "Anubias afzelii", but is commonly found in west African countries such as Liberia, Cameron, Guinea and Ivory Coast. It is easily identified by its lineal, oval form of the lease blades that can be as long as 30 cm in length, it's reddish-brown leaf stocks and straight lined margin. Most hobbyists that's use this species employee the plants to cover driftwood or rocks, and sometimes planted in the substrate. Unfortunately, however, the plant seems to be highly overlooked and therefore less use by the larger group of hobbyists.
