    Habitat
    Premontane rain forest (P-rf) life zone.
    General Description
    Epiphytic; internodes short, drying 1.2 cm diam.; cataphylls 7.5-16 cm long, drying brown, lanceolate to almost linear, persisting at upper internodes as a reticulum of fine, pale tan fibers. LEAVES: Petioles 28.5 cm long, drying 5 mm diam., yellowish brown, darkened near base; geniculum shaped like petiole, concolorous with petiole, 2 cm long, drying 4 mm wide; blades oblong-elliptic, slightly inequilateral, one side up to 5 mm wider, narrowly acuminate and apiculate at apex, narrowly attenuate at base, 40.5 × 11 cm, 3.7 times longer than wide, drying light grayish brown, weakly glossy, eglandular above, darker brown, semi-glossy, somewhat inconspicuously glandular-punctate below; midrib narrowly convex, concolorous; primary lateral veins 9-11 per side, 0.8-2 cm apart, sometimes arising at an acute angle, then spreading to a 25-40° angle, prominently loop connected, concolorous, prominulous; collective veins arising from base, equally prominent as primary veins, 6-11 cm from margin. INFLORESCENCE with peduncle 38.5 cm long, drying 6 cm wide (flattened), brown slightly tinged with red; spathe reflexed-spreading, linear, 12 cm × 11 mm, 0.31 times the length of peduncle, narrowly acuminate and aristate (to 7 mm) at apex; spadix cylindrical, abruptly tapering near apex, erect at base, curving to a 90° angle toward spathe, 17 cm × 6 mm. Flowers 1.5 × 1.7 mm, 7-8 visible per spiral; lateral tepals 0.8 mm wide, outside margins 2-sided.
    Distribution
    Endemic to the type locality in northern Perú at 320 m in Premontane rain forest (P-rf) life zone.
    Diagnostic
    Characterized by long cataphylls, elliptic blades, prominulous primary veins, and prominently loopconnected collective veins. It is similar to A. atamainii, but that species has shorter cataphylls, much more ovate blades, and less prominently loop-connected collective veins.
