    Distribution
    Only known from the type locality, i.e. Pilões, in the Município of Palhoça, S. Catarina, where I found 6 plants.
    Phenology
    Flowers in April.
    Diagnostic
    A. pilonense Reitz seems near to A. acutum N.E.Brown, [but differs] especially in the hastate rather than sagittate shape of the leaf and the presence of 2 basal primary veins rather than 4 as in A. acutum.
    General Description
    Stem abbreviated. Cataphylls triangular, later decomposing into fibres, 8 -10 cm long. LEAVES: Petiole more-or-less terete, not sulcate, 30 - 50 cm long, geniculum 1 cm long. Leaf blade subcoriaceous, hastate, 30- 40 cm long, posterior lobes separated by a very wide sinus, 10 - 12 cm long, obtuse, anterior lobe oblong-triangular, at the apex suddenly acuminate for 2 - 3 mm, primary lateral veins of the anterior lobe numerous (ca. 35) on each side, close to one another, patent, unequally distant from one another and seemlingly confused with the secondaries, joined into a collective vein 1 cm distant from the margin, basal veins 2, strongly curved, proximally more-or-less denuded for a long interval (1.5 cm) in the sinus, thereafter running into the posterior lobes, later on the lower one curving upwards and disappearing and the upper one curving upwards and giving rise to the collective vein of the anterior lobe. INFLORESCENCE: Peduncle 30 - 40 cm long. Spathe linear-lanceolate, recurved, shortly acuminate, green-violet, 6 cm long, 7 mm wide. Spadix shortly stipitate (3 mm), 5 mm thick, attenuate upwards, greenish-violet.
