    Epiphyte or less frequently terrestrial, rooted in deep debris, to 125 cm tall; stem moderately elongate, sometimes to 70 cm long, 1-2 cm diam.; internodes short near apex, sometimes more elongate in lower portion; leaf scars usually obscured by cataphylls, to 1 cm wide; roots moderately few, greenish, scattered along stem, ca. 4 mm diam.; cataphylls green, coriaceous, weakly cuspidate at apex, drying brown, persisting intact, ultimately deciduous. LEAVES spreading; petioles subterete, 12-37 cm long, 4-5 mm diam., narrowly flattened adaxially; geniculum 1.5-2 cm long, shaped like petiole or obscurely sulcate; blades moderately thick, ovate to ovate-triangular, abruptly acuminate at apex, shallowly or prominently lobed at base, 12-28 cm long, 9-22 cm wide, broadest at point of petiole attachment; anterior lobe 10.5-21 cm long, the margins straight to convex; posterior lobes 1.5-6.5 cm long; sinus arcuate to parabolic, rounded at apex; both surfaces semiglossy to glossy; midrib raised above, acutely raised below; basal veins 3-6 pairs, the first and sometimes the second free to the base, those remaining coalesced 0.5-1 cm, raised above and below; posterior rib absent or more or less straight, naked, weakly turned up along outer margin; primary lateral veins 4-8 per side, relatively inconspicuous, weakly sunken, straight or weakly arching near collective vein; lesser veins obscure, more conspicuous on drying; collective vein arising from second or third basal vein, loop-connecting the primary lateral veins, 2-8 mm from margin. INFLORESCENCE erect; peduncle terete, 7.5-18 cm long, 4-5 mm diam., ca. one-half as long as petioles; spathe subcoriaceous, greenish white sometimes tinged pinkish (B & K Yellow-green 9/10), ovate elliptic to oblong-elliptic, 6-13 cm long, 1.7-3 cm wide. broadest at the base, acuminate at apex, truncate to rounded at base; spadix violet purple (B & K Purple 3/10-4/5), scarcely tapered at apex, 4-7 cm long, 6-9 mm diam. at base, 3-6 mm diam. near apex; flowers rhombic to 4-lobed, 2-2.4 mm long, 2-3 mm wide, the sides jaggedly sigmoid, 6-7 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 5-8 flowers visible in the alternate spiral; tepals glossy, lateral tepals 1-1.2 mm wide, the inner margins concave, more or less angular; pistils flat to weakly mounded, white, glossy; stigmas linear, ca. 0.3 mm long, dry when stamens emerge; stamens emerging rapidly beginning at the base, anthers not exposed, pollen exuding from between pistil and tepals, held above and obscuring pistil; pollen white. INFRUCTESCENCE with obovoid-ellipsoid berries, ca. 8.5 mm long, white in lower portion, brownish near apex, mammilliform at apex; mesocarp gelatinous, transparent; seeds tan, ca. 5 mm long, 2 mm diam.
    Distribution
    Panama, where the species has also been collected in the Canal Zone along the Caribbean at nearly sea level. It is also found in Colombia in the Choco department.
