    Terrestrial or epiphytic; stem short, 3.5-5.5 cm diam.; roots dense, upper ones ascending, lower ones descending, whitish to grayish, woolly-pubescent, moderately tapered, ca. 3-12 cm long, 4- 5 mm diam.; cataphylls thickly coriaceous, lanceolate, 22-40 cm long, obtuse at apex, medium green, drying medium brown, persisting intact or semi-intact, eventually as coarse linear fibers. LEAVES erect-spreading; petioles (3)17-23 cm long, (6)lO-15 mm diam., thicker than broad to D-shaped to trapezoidal or C-shaped, sharply to broadly V-sulcate adaxially with the margins raised, sharply 2-9-ribbed abaxially; geniculum conspicuously thicker than petiole, 1-2.5 cm long; sheath 9-13 cm long; blades coriaceous to subcoriaceous, broadly oblanceolate to oblong-elliptic, rounded to obtuse or sometimes acute at apex, acute at base, (46)90- 145 cm long, 23-37 cm wide, broadest above the middle, the margins slightly undulate; upper surface matte to semiglossy, dark green, lower surface semiglossy to glossy, paler; midrib broadly convex at base, becoming flat-raised toward the middle and narrowly convex at the apex above, trapezoidal and 3-ribbed at base, becoming acutely angled and then convex toward the apex below; primary lateral veins 14-40 per side, departing midrib at 50-70° angle, straight or slightly arcuate to the collective vein, convexly raised above, less conspicuously so below; interprimary veins sometimes present, inconspicuous to almost as conspicuous as primary lateral veins; tertiary veins darker than surface and flat below, moderately indistinct; reticulate veins prominulous above and below (or not visible) on drying; collective vein arising from or near the base, equally as prominent as primary lateral veins, 1-13 mm from margin. INFLORESCENCES erect; peduncle (36)50-85 cm long, (3)5-6 mm diam., 2.5-3(6) x as long as petiole, terete to bluntly or sharply multiribbed; spathe spreading, with the margins curled under, subcoriaceous, medium green, becoming yellowish, oblong-lanceolate, (7)13-20 cm long, 1.3-2 cm wide, broadest near the base, inserted at 30° angle on peduncle, shortly acuminate at apex, acute at base; spadix medium green, sessile or shortly stipitate, cylindroid to long-tapered, erect to curved, (8)12-23 cm long, 5-9 mm diam. near base, 3-4 mm diam. near apex; flowers rhombic, 1.7-2.6 mm long, 1.1-1.9 mm wide, the sides straight to smoothly sigmoid; 6- 13 flowers visible in principal spiral, 5-7 in alternate spiral; tepals matte; lateral tepals 1-1.3 mm wide, the inner margins rounded, erose, the outer margins 2-sided; pistils weakly emergent; stigma ellipsoid to broadly ellipsoid; anthers tan, 0.5-0.6 mm long, 0.6-0.7 mm wide; thecae oblong, not divaricate; pollen yellow fading to white. INFRUCTESCENCE (immature): spreading(?); spathe reflexed and persistent, green; spadix 22-30 cm long, 1.4 cm diam.; berries light purple; pericarp with raphide cells; seeds unknown.
    Found as an epiphyte or terrestrially in either lower montane dry or premontane dry forest life zones (life zone uncertain).
    Endemic to Ecuador in southern Bolivar, Napo and southwestern Chimborazo provinces.
