    Habitat
    Lower montane wet forest.
    Diagnostic
    It is recognized by its scandent habit, its D-shaped petioles, and by its more or less panduriform leaf blades with the posterior lobes longer than broad and projecting outward at about 130° angle from the midrib. Also characteristic are its ribbed peduncles, its green oblong-lanceolate spathe, and its red berries.
    General Description
    Scandent epiphyte; stem ca. 1 cm diam.; internodes 1-1.2 cm long; cataphylls 11 cm long, weathering to fine fibers, ultimately deciduous. LEAVES with petioles 23-24 cm long, flattened adaxially with sharp margins; geniculum ca. 1 cm long; blades triangular, conspicuously hastate lobed, drying subcoriaceous, long acuminate at apex, deeply lobed at base, 31-36.5 cm long. 19-20 cm wide, broadest near base; anterior lobe 23-26 cm long, the margins convex near apex, weakly constricted toward the base; posterior lobes 11.2-12.5 cm long (from apex of sinus to outermost point), 6-6.5 cm wide, directed outward from petiole; both surfaces matte (dry), the lower surface much paler; midrib scarcely raised above, raised below; basal veins 5-7 pairs, the first free to the base, those remaining coalesced 1.3-2.5 cm, prominulous above, raised below; primary lateral veins 8-10 per side, straight to collective vein, prominulous above, raised below, lesser veins conspicuous on drying; collective vein arising from one of the lowermost basal veins, loop-connecting the preceding basal veins and the primary lateral veins, 3-4 mm from margin, flat to scarcely raised above, raised below. INFLORESCENCE shorter than leaves; peduncle ribbed, ca. 11.5 cm long; spathe moderately thin, pale green, narrowly lanceolate, 10.5 cm long, 1.1 cm wide, acuminate at apex, spadix not seen at anthesis. INFRUCTESCENCE with spadix 4-4.5 cm long (possibly damaged), 7 mm diam. near base, 4 mm diam. near apex; berries red.
    Distribution
