LEAVES erect-spreading; petioles 4-14 cm long, 2-4 mm diam., subterete, sharply sulcate adaxially, conspicuously reddish brown glandular-punctate; geniculum 1-1.5 cm long, scarcely thicker or paler than petiole; blades elliptic to oblanceolate, chartaceous, acuminate at apex, acute to obtuse at base, 8.5-28 cm long, 2.4-6 cm wide, broadest at middle or just below; both surfaces semiglossy, the upper surface obscurely glandular-punctate, the lower surface much paler and conspicuously black glandular-punctate; midrib convexly raised above, more acute near apex, abruptly sunken at apex, acutely to obtusely raised below; primary lateral veins 10-13 per side, departing midrib at 50-60° angle, sunken in valleys above, raised below, straight or weakly curved to collective vein; interprimary veins scarcely visible; collective vein arising from the base, 2-4 mm from the margin, sunken above, raised below. INFLORESCENCE erect-spreading or pendent; peduncle 13-33 cm long, 2-3 mm diam., terete; to 6 times as long as petioles; spathe chartaceous, pale green, lanceolate, 2-3.5 cm long, 6-7 mm wide, broadest near base, gradually acuminate at apex, rounded at base, inserted at 90° angle on peduncle; spadix yellow-green, 2.1-6.5 cm long, 4-5 mm diam. midway; flowers square, 3.2-3.8 mm in both directions, the sides straight to weakly sigmoid, 3-4 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 8-9 visible in the alternate spiral; tepals glossy, sparsely punctate, densely and minutely papillate with minute droplets; lateral tepals 1-1.2 mm wide, the inner margin concave to straight; pistils emergent, green, glossy; stigmas elliptic; stamens emerging in a slow, regular sequence from the base, laterals preceding alternates by 2-3 spirals; exserted on translucent filaments ca. 0.5 mm long, retracting to hold anthers at edge of tepals; anthers white, persisting, 0.8 mm in both directions; thecae oblong; pollen white. INFRUCTESCENCE with berries white turning purplish, depressed-globose, ca. 6 mm diam.; mesocarp with numerous, short raphide cells; seeds (1-)2-4, ovoid-ellipsoid, greenish white, 2-2.3 mm long, 1.5-1.8 mm wide, ca. 1 mm thick, enveloped by a sticky, transparent, gelatinous envelope, thicker to one side and extending beyond one end.
