    Premontane wet forest transitioning to Tropical (P-wf/T) life zone.
    Distribution
    Known only from the type locality in Perú.
    General Description
    Epiphytic; internodes short, smooth, less than 1 cm long, drying ca. 1.5 cm diam., tan; cataphylls 10.5 cm long, drying light red, +/- linear, persisting intact at upper internodes, then quickly deciduous. LEAVES: Petioles 60-69 cm long, drying 4-6 mm diam., drying light reddish gray; geniculum slightly darker than petiole, ca. 1 cm long, drying ca. 5 mm diam., wrinkled; blades trisect, broader than long, drying gray-green to light red-brown and weakly glossy to semi-glossy above, yellowish green to pale orange-brown and semi-glossy below; segments entire, median segment obovate to broadly elliptic, 35-43.5 × 18-19.5 cm, abruptly acuminate (acumen ca. 2 cm long), acute to attenuate at base; midrib narrowly convex, thicker than broad, drying ca. 1 mm diam., surface densely marked with minute, brown irregular lines on magnification, light brown to light red brown above, light brown below; primary lateral veins 7-9 pairs, 2.5-4 cm apart, departing midrib at a 40-50° angle; nterprimary veins almost as prominent as primary veins; collective veins arising from near base, almost as prominent as primary lateral veins, 0.6-1.2 cm from margin; lateral segments somewhat ovate to broadly elliptic, markedly inequilateral (one side up to 1.5 cm longer than the other), 30-37 × 13-14 cm, directed upward and outward, rounded at apex; midrib slightly less prominent than on median segment, brown to almost concolorous above, not extending to apex of segment but merging with collective vein on outer side of the segment; 1-2 prominent veins near base on one side of midrib only, then 5-7 less conspicuous veins per side, 2-5 cm apart, departing midrib at a 35-45° angle, slightly curved to a collective vein, concolorous to slightly paler above, the less conspicuous veins sometimes more raised and prominent on outer side of the midrib than the inner side; collective veins 1 or 2 arising from prominent primary lateral veins on outer side of midrib (2 collective veins only on the side of midrib with 2 prominent primary lateral veins, still only 1 collective vein on the other side), arising from near base on the other side, as prominent or slightly less prominent than primary lateral veins, 1st collective vein 0.5-1.2 cm from margin, 2nd collective vein 2-4 cm from margin. INFLORESCENCE with peduncle 14.5 cm long, drying 4 mm diam., medium reddish brown; spathe erect-spreading, light green, lanceolate, ca. 10 cm long, 2.4 cm wide, gradually acuminate at apex (acumen curled, ca. 8 mm long); spadix (post anthesis) cylindroid, erect, 6-12 cm long, drying 5-8 mm diam. Flowers 1.9-2 × 2-2.1 mm, 7-8 visible per spiral; lateral tepals 1-1.2 mm diam., 2-sided.
    Diagnostic
    It is characterized by broad, trisect blades with lateral segments and midribs that do not reach all the way to the apex of the segment. It is closely related to A. triphyllum in blade shape, size and venation, but A. triphyllum has blades that dry more brown and lack the minute, irregular lines on the surface.
