    General Description

    Terrestrial; stems short and stout; internodes short, 1.5-4 cm diam., medium green, tinged weakly with red; cataphylls heavily tinged reddish brown, rounded at apex with free-ending apex, weathering to fibers then deciduous. LEAVES usually moderately few, clustered at apex of stem but not closely arranged; petioles erect-spreading, 25-89 cm long, 0.75-1.5 cm diam., terete and 7-9 ribbed circumferentially, the ribs moderately wavy, especially on midrib, continuous with midrib and posterior rib on lower blade surface; blades mostly pendent, ovate to narrowly ovate, 25-6.5 cm long, 15-50 cm wide, broadest at petiole attachment or slightly distil to petiole attachment, acute to acuminate at apex, prominently lobed at base, coriaceous, conspicuously bullate; margin straight, revolute; anterior lobe to 46 cm long; posterior lobes narrowly rounded to slightly longer than broad, directed toward the base, broadly rounded on outer margin all the way to the middle of the blade, the surface flat or turned up only slightly at an angle to the midrib; sinus spathulate to narrowly V-shaped, sometimes narrowly hippocrepiform, 5-19 cm deep, 2.5-7 cm wide; major veins acute and in valleys on upper surface, acute on lower surface; midrib prominently ribbed on lower surface; primary lateral veins 5-10 per side, departing midrib at 35°-60° angle, weakly arcuate toward apex, usually joining a collective vein distant from the margins, smooth and glabrous, never scaly; collective veins usually arising from the uppermost basal veins, or in larger blades from the 1st and 2nd basal veins or even from the posterior rib; basal veins 5-7 on each side, 1st to 2nd or 3rd pairs free to the petiole, the remaining 3-5 pair coalesced 4-9 cm; upper surface dark green and glossy; lower surface much paler, epunctate. INFLORESCENCE erect, held slightly above the leaves; peduncle 8-29 cm long, 1/2-1/3 as long as petioles; spathe reflexed, 6.5-12.5(19) cm long, 3-5.7(10.50 cm wide, narrowly ovate, acuminate, cordate at base, somewhat wavy on margins, obliquely attached to petiole, white to cream with greenish veins abaxially; spadix green, turning yellow at anthesis, 6.5-21 cm long, briefly stipitate, weakly tapering to apex, narrowly rounded at apex. INFRUCTESCENCE with berries red to purple, 5-7 mm long.
