LEAVES usually erect; petioles 23-54 cm long, 5-6 mm diam., terete; geniculum 1.5-2 cm long; blades ovate, moderately thin, gradually acuminate at apex, lobed at base, 22-48 cm long, 13-31 cm wide, broadest just below middle; anterior lobe 17-33 cm long, the margins convex: posterior lobes 8.2-15 cm long, directed upward; the sinus hippocrepiform to spathulate, round to acute at apex; both surfaces matte (cells on lower surface glistening and weakly papillate); the midrib sharply raised above, diminishing at center, sunken at apex, bluntly raised below; basal veins 4-7 pairs, the first and second (sometimes third) free to base, the third to seventh coalesced 1-3.5 cm; posterior ribs naked, upturned; primary lateral veins 4-6 per side, departing midrib at 45°-55° angle, sunken in valleys above, raised below, straight or arching to collective vein; lesser veins prominulous above and below; collective vein arising from first or second basal vein, 4-10 mm from margin. INFLORESCENCE erect, much shorter than leaves; peduncle 3.5-10 cm long, 6-7 mm diam., terete, shorter than petioles; spathe subcoriaceous, medium green (B & K Yellow-green 7/10), ovate, 5.5-8.5 cm long, 4.3-6 cm wide, broadest just above point of attachment, abruptly acuminate at apex, cordate at base, inserted at 40° angle on peduncle; the stipe 7-15 mm long in front, 4 mm long in back, tapered at base of spadix, medium green; spadix medium green (B & K Yellow-green 7/2.5), 2.5-5.2 cm long, 1.4-2 cm diam. at base, 5-8 mm diam. at apex; flowers rhombic to sub-4-lobed, 3.5-4 mm long, 3.6-4 mm wide, the sides sigmoid to jaggedly sigmoid, sometimes broadly rounded parallel to the spirals; 5 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 7 flowers visible in the alternate spiral; tepals matte to semiglossy, lateral tepals 2.2-2.5 mm wide, the inner margin broadly rounded and turned up against the pistil; the pistil emergent to ca. 0.7 mm, darker green than tepals; stigma 0.3 mm long, round, brushlike, glistening; stamens emerging promptly throughout the spadix (sometimes beginning at apex), the lateral stamens emerging throughout before the alternates emerge, the third and fourth stamens following in rapid sequence after 1 or 2 days; filaments exserted. 0.5 mm long, translucent; anthers pale yellow, retracted to upper edge of tepals, 0.7-0.8 mm long, 1 mm wide; thecae oblong-ellipsoid, slightly divaricate; pollen creamy white. INFRUCTESCENCE erect; spathe persistent: spadix 4-6 cm long, 2.5-4 cm diam.; berries obovoid, vermillion-coral (see Steyermark 51703), rounded at apex, 11-13 mm long, 6-8 mm diam.; seeds 2, oblong-obovoid, weakly flattened, 5.5-7.5 mm long, 3.5-4 mm wide, 2-2.5 mm thick.
    Habitat
    Tropical wet forest.
    Distribution
    Guatemala and Honduras. In Guatemala it has been collected in the Department of Alta Verapaz in the vicinity of Purulha and Tactic as well as in the Department of Huchuctenango in the Sierra de los Cuchumantes. It is certainly expected to be found in the Department of Quiche as well. In Honduras it was collected near Lepaera.
