    General Description
    Stems ascending; internodes short, 2.5-3 cm diam. cataphylls triangular-lanceolate, 7-8 cm long, soon weathering to loose ferruginous or (reddish-brown) fibers. LEAVES: Petiole fairly long-sheathed, sulcate above, almost as long as the blade, geniculum 3-4 cm long, flattened above; blades coriaceous, deep green above, black-dotted below, oblong-elliptical, narrowed toward the base, briefly acuminate at the tip, about 4-4.5 dm [40 - 45 cm] long, 1.3-1.5 dm [13 - 15 cm] wide, 3-veined (with l pair of basal veins) forming a collective vein to the apex. INFLORESCENCE: Peduncle slender, rising above (overtopping) the petiole; spathe finely membranous, palely green, linear-lanceolate, decurrent upward, soon reflexed, 1 dm [10 cm] long; spadix sessile, almost resembling Myosurus [mouse-tail plant of Ranunculus family], up to 2 dm [20 cm] long, flower-bearing 5-6 mm thick; tepals 11/2 times wider in respect to (than?) their own width; ovary oblong, somewhat 4-angled.
