    Habitat
    Premontane wet forest (P-wf) or Tropical moist forest (T-mf) life zones.
    General Description
    Epiphytic, internodes short, drying 1.5 cm diam.; cataphylls 13 cm long, tan, persisting as linear fibers. LEAVES: Petioles 52.7 cm long, drying 3 mm wide, grayish brown; geniculum darkened, 2.5 × 3 cm; blades broadly ovate, slightly inequilateral, one side up to 1 cm wider, abruptly and narrowly acuminate at apex, attenuate at base, 37 × 15 cm, 2.5 times longer than broad, 0.7 times the length of the petiole, drying olive green, weakly glossy, eglandular above, paler and more brownish, semi-glossy, glandular-punctate below; midrib narrowly convex, drying 1 mm diam., brownish above, convex, darker than blade surface below; primary lateral veins 15-18 per side, 1-2 cm apart, departing from the midrib at a 50-60° angle, concolorous above, slightly darker than surface below, somewhat prominent on both surfaces; collective veins arising from near base, prominently loop-connected, as equally prominent as primary veins, 1 cm from margin to less than 1 mm from margin near apex. INFLORESCENCES with peduncle 32 cm long, drying 1 mm diam., darkened; spathe reflexed-spreading, green, linear, 5.7 × 1.1 cm, 0.2 times the length of peduncle, abruptly and narrowly acuminate at apex, apex 3 mm long; spadix green, cylindrical, erect, 8 cm long, drying 4 cm diam. Flowers 2 × 1.8 mm, 4-5 visible per spiral; lateral tepals 1 mm wide, two-sided.
    Distribution
    Endemic to the type locality in northern Perú at 750 m in Premontane wet forest (P-wf) or Tropical moist forest (T-mf) life zones.
    Diagnostic
    Characterized by its long cataphylls and large, broad, ovate blades. It is similar to A. quipuscoae Croat, also published in this manuscript, but that species has smaller cataphylls, is broader with respect to length, and more abrupt at the apex.
