    General Description
    Usually epiphytic, sometimes terrestrial; stems green, to 20 cm long, ca. 4 cm diam.; internodes very short; leaf scars ca. 2.5 cm wide, sometimes obscured by cataphyll fibers; roots few, green, moderately thin, descending; cataphylls moderately thick, 6-8 cm long, acute at apex, drying brown (B & K Yellow 5/7.5) weathering to coarse fibers and persisting. LEAVES with petioles erect-spreading, 16-55 cm long, 4-6 mm diam., sub-terete, sometimes weakly sulcate; geniculum 2-3 cm long, scarcely thicker and paler than petiole, weakly sulcate; blades narrowly ovate to triangular, moderately thick, long-acuminate at apex, shallowly to deeply lobed at base, 18-44 cm long, 9-22 cm wide, usually broadest near the base, sometimes at point of petiole attachment; anterior lobe 17-34 cm long, the margins straight to weakly convex, posterior lobes 5-14 cm long, from apex of sinus to outermost point; sinus parabolic to hippocrepiform, rarely with the lobes overlapping; both surfaces matte to semiglossy, the lower surface dark, glandular-punctate, markedly paler; midrib convexly raised above, diminishing and sunken toward apex, convexly raised below; basal veins 4-6 pairs, first and sometimes second free to the base, those remaining coalesced 1.2-2 cm, flat to weakly sunken above, raised below, posterior rib naked, the outer margins weakly upturned; primary lateral veins 5-8 per side, departing midrib at 50-55° angle, straight to collective vein, sunken above, raised below; lesser veins scarcely visible, conspicuous on drying; collective vein arising from one of the lowermost basal veins, sometimes from the first or second in smaller blades, loop-connecting the primary lateral veins, 4-6 mm from margin, sunken above, raised below. INFLORESCENCE arching-pendent, as long or longer than leaves; peduncle 34-48 cm long, 5-7 mm diam., terete; spathe pale green, sometimes tinged reddish, moderately thick, lanceolate, 7-12 cm long, 1.3-1.5 cm wide, broadest near base, strongly reflexed at anthesis, long-acuminate at apex, acute at base; spadix deep violet purple, 7-20 cm long, 8-15 mm diam. near base, 4-7 mm diam. near apex; flowers rhombic, 1.8-2 mm long, 2-2.1 mm wide, the sides straight to weakly sigmoid, 5-7 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 7-9 flowers visible in the alternate spiral; tepals matte, lateral tepals 0.6-0.8 mm wide, the inner margin convex; pistils not emergent; stigma linear, ca. 0.7 mm long; stamens emerging from the base, laterals first preceding alternates by 3-5 spirals; anthers yellowish, held over pistil, ca. 0.6 mm in both directions, thecae oblong, not divaricate. INFRUCTESCENCE with white berries.
