    Habitat
    Premontane rain forest (P-rf) life zone.
    Diagnostic
    Characterized by large, extremely broad ovate or elliptic blades that are only 1.6 times longer than wide and a very abruptly acuminate apex. The species keys out near A. mostaceroi, but that species differs in having ovate-elliptic blades which are 2.5 times longer than wide versus ovate-elliptic and 2.5 times longer than wide in A. quispuscoae.
    General Description
    Terrestrial; internodes drying 2 cm diam.; cataphylls 8 cm long, pale tan, persisting at upper internodes as longitudinal fibers. LEAVES: Petioles 54 cm long, drying 3 mm wide, dark yellowish brown; geniculum approximately same shape as petiole, slightly darkened, 1.5 cm × 4 mm; blades broadly ovate to broadly elliptic, very abruptly acuminate at apex (acumen 2.7 cm long), cuneate to rounded at base, 31 × 19 cm, 1.6 times longer than wide, 0.57 times length of petiole, drying light brownish green, matte to weakly glossy, eglandular above, pale brown, semi-glossy, glandular-punctate below; midrib drying broadly convex to convex, concolorous to slightly darker below; primary lateral veins 15 per side, 1.2-2.5 cm apart, departing midrib at a 45-50° angle, concolorous above, concolorous to slightly darker than surface below; collective veins arising from near base, equally prominent as primary veins, 4-7 mm from margin. INFLORESCENCE with peduncle 33.5 cm long, drying 2 mm diam., drying dark reddish brown; spathe red; spadix cylindrical, erect, 4.4 cm long, drying 4 mm diam. Flowers 2.5 × 2 cm, 4-5 visible per spiral; lateral tepals 1 cm wide, outer margins 2-sided.
