    Tropical wet forest (T-wf) or Premontane rain forest (P-rf) life zones.
    Distribution
    Endemic to the type locality in northern Perú (Bagua, Imaza).
    Diagnostic
    This species is characterized by its darkened, elliptic to oblong-elliptic blades that are almost five times longer than wide. It is most closely related to A. lingulare, which also has blades somewhat longer than wide and a long spadix. However, A. lingulare is epiphytic, has strap-shaped blades 9 to 10 times longer than wide, and a maroon spadix.
    General Description
    Terrestrial; internodes short, drying ca. 1 cm diam.; cataphylls 12.5 cm long, drying pale tan, weathering to longitudinal fibers near apex, to a reticulum of finer fibers near base, at upper nodes, eventually deciduous. LEAVES: Petioles 22-37.5 cm long, drying 3-5 mm diam., medium brown-tinged with gray; blades +/- elliptic, narrowly acuminate at apex (acumen 2-2.6 cm long), slightly attenuate at base, 31- 33 cm long, 6.3-7 cm wide, 4.7-4.9 times longer than wide, drying matte, greenish brown above, weakly to semiglossy, brown faintly tinged with yellow and dark glandular- punctate below; midrib slightly raised, concolorous above, narrowly rounded,concolorous below; primary lateral veins (11-)13-15 per side, scarcely more prominent than interprimary veins; collective veins arising from near base, prominent above and below, 3-8 mm from margin. INFLORESCENCE with peduncle 37 cm long, drying ca. 2 mm diam.; spathe spreading, green, oblong to oblong-elliptic, 6.5 cm long, drying 5 mm wide at widest part near base, furled; spadix (post-anthesis) green, tapered near apex, 11 cm long, drying 6 mm wide. Flowers 2.8-3 mm long, 2.2-3.2 mm wide, (2-) 3-4 visible per spiral; lateral tepals 1.2-1.5 mm wide, outer margin 2-sided, inner margins not straight, concave at center with its lateral edges forming an acute angle with the sides of the tepal.
