Cercestis mirabilis is a member of the larger plant family Araceae and members of this family are commonly known as aroids. The scientific name Cercestis in common Latin is pronounced  "ser-SES-tes" while mirabilis is pronounced "mir-AB-ilis".

Cercestis mirabilis was formerly known scientifically by a variety of scientific names including Nephthytis picturata, Rhektophyllum congense, and Rhektophyllum mirabile but all those are now synonyms of the accepted species name Cercestis mirabilis.  A synonym is a previously published name applied to a species that has already been published and is correct as to genus placement.  In this case the species was incorrectly placed twice in the wrong genera so the originally published names became invalid.
