    General Description
    Terrestrial; stems moderately short, 2.5-3 cm diam.; the internodes to ca. 3 cm long; cataphylls promptly weathering to coarse, pale fibers. LEAVES with petioles sulcate adaxially; blades ovate, moderately thin, abruptly acuminate at apex (the acumen narrowly inrolled), deeply lobed at base, to 63 cm long, ca. 46 cm wide, usually broadest in the lower third; anterior lobe to 47 cm long, broadly rounded along the margin, posterior lobes broadly rounded, directed toward the base; sinus spathulate, to 13 cm deep, closed or nearly so; both surfaces weakly glossy on drying, scarcely paler beneath; midrib sharply raised above (dry), raised below; basal veins to 8 pairs, the first to fourth pairs free to the base, the remainder coalesced ca. 2 cm; primary lateral veins to 15 per side, departing the midrib at 55-60° angle, gradually arcuate to the collective vein, drying sharply raised above, prominently raised and paler than the surface below; interprimary veins irregular, drying prominulous above, prominent below but much less conspicuous than the primary lateral veins, interconnected to the primary lateral veins by prominent tertiary veins; collective vein arising from the third basal vein, mostly 1-3 mm from the margin, weakly sunken above, prominent beneath. INFLORESCENCE semi-erect; peduncle to 34 cm long, ca. 5 mm diam., terete; spathe thin, green, spreading, oblong-lanceolate, to 17 cm long, 1.5 cm wide, broadest near the base, acuminate at apex, acute at the base, decurrent ca. 1.5 cm, inserted at ca. 45° angle on peduncle; stipe ca. 4 mm long, 4 mm diam. (dried); spadix yellow-green, gradually tapered, to 17 cm long, to 7 mm diam. near the base, to 3 mm diam. near the apex, held weakly forward at ca. 25° angle from the peduncle; flowers rhombic, 3.5-3.8 mm long, 2.2-3.2 mm diam., 5-6 flowers visible in the principal; tepals drying tan, minutely and densely glandular-punctate with a few conspicuous raphide cells, weakly glossy, lateral tepals 2.3-2.5 mm wide, the inner margin broadly rounded, thin; pistils probably weakly exserted; stigma 0.7 mm long, 0.6 mm wide; emergence of stamens not observed.
