I recently bought an Anubias plant from my LFS that I was wondering if you guys would do me a favor in helping me identify it.

To me, from the pictures I found on Florida Aquatics website (my LFS gets their plants from Florida Aquatic Nursery) I think it looks like any of the following species, but not 100% sure which:
Anubias afzelii
Anubias 'Congensis'
Anubias barteri var. angustifolia
Anubias 'Lanceolata'
Anubias gigantea

Here's the photo (hi-res one can be found here):


If you know what it is, please let me know as I may order some in the future if it survives my african cichlids...

Anyone? There has to be someone here who can take an educated guess or look in a plant encyclopedia if you own one...

Looks life Afzelii to me. I have that variety in a few of my tanks and they all look a bit different depending on light levels, CO2, nutrients, etc. Even if it is one of the other var you posted, the care is the same.

That plant is Anubias minima. It's regularly distributed by Segrest farms which puts it in a lot of fish stores. I have a number of them growing. They aren't very hardy compared to A. nana but do ok if you attach them to wood. I believe they are more of a bog type plant than an aquatic plant as they do much better if the leaves can reach above the water surface.
