LEAVES erect-spreading; petioles (2)11-57(65)cm long, (2)8-18 mm diam., bluntly to sharply D-shaped, flattened to slightly sulcate adaxially, rounded abaxially, the surface pale-speckled; geniculum slightly paler and thicker than petiole, (0.2)0.8-2 cm long; blades coriaceous to subcoriaceous, oblanceolate to broadly elliptic, acute to obtuse to short-acuminate at apex, cuneate- attenuate to obtuse to rounded, rarely shallowly cordate at base, (14)20-84 cm long, (4.2)12- 29(34)cm wide, broadest usually above the middle, the margins usually flat, sometimes broadly undulate; upper surface glossy to semiglossy, medium green (B & K green 2/2.5), lower surface matte, paler; major veins sometimes paler on both surfaces; midrib convexly raised above, prominently and acutely raised below (about as high as broad); primary lateral veins (4)7-l0(14) per side, departing midrib at (30)40-60(80)° angle, arcuate-ascending to the margin or to the collective vein, raised, sometimes becoming sunken toward margin above, raised below; tertiary veins weakly etched, and sometimes concolorous above, prominulous and darker below, conspicuously raised on both surfaces when dried; collective vein arising from about the middle to near the apex of the blade or absent, sunken above, weakly raised below, 5-13 mm from margin. INFLORESCENCES erect to spreading, equalling or longer than leaves; peduncle (15)35-134 cm long, (1)2-12 mm diam., 1.3-2.3(14.6)x as long as petiole, terete; spathe spreading to reflexed, sometimes recurled, subcoriaceous, withering and/or deciduous, yellow-green (B & K yellow-green 8/10 ), lanceolate, (3)5-17 cm long, (0.5)l-2 cm wide, broadest near the base, inserted at 20-40° angle on peduncle, long-acuminate at apex (the acumen ca. 3 mm long), acute to obtuse at base; spadix pinkish to dull brownish olive-green to dark red or purplish violet, oblong, weakly tapered, sessile or stipitate to 4 cm, erect, (1.5)4-12(20) cm long, 3-7 mm diam. midway, 1.5-4 mm diam. near apex, moderately tapered; flowers 4-lobed, 1.8-3 mm long, 1.2-2.7 mm wide; (2)4-9 flowers visible in principal spiral, 4-10 in alternate spiral; tepals matte, minutely papillate; lateral tepals 0.9-2.2 mm wide, the inner margins straight to broadly rounded, sometimes minutely and unevenly erose, the outer margins 2-5-sided; pistils not emergent before anthesis, slightly raised at anthesis, caviform with erect, reddish margins; stigma linear becoming circular, 0.2-0.3 mm long; lateral stamens preceding the alternates by 2-16 spirals, the 3rd stamen preceding the 4th by 7-10 spirals; anthers 0.4-0.6 mm long, 0.4-0.7 mm wide, inclined over and obscuring the pistil; thecae ovoid-ellipsoid, not divaricate. INFRUCTESCENCE with spathe deciduous; spadix normally more than 15 cm long, bearing berries in the basal portion only; berries dark purple to dark red toward the apex, white below, obovoid, "hollow" when rehydrated, 7-9 mm long, 4-6 mm diam.; seeds 1-2 per berry, 5.5-6.8 mm long, 3-3.5 mm diam., 2-2.3 mm thick, weakly apiculate at both ends, pale-punctate.
