    General Description
    Evergreen, medium-sized, slender to moderate lianescent herb to 2 m. Stem of adult plants root-climbing. Leaves distichous, scattered on climbing shoots but congested into loose fans at shoot tips where flowering occurs. Lamina ovato-cordate to oblong 14–20 by 9–10 cm, base truncate to weakly cordate or slightly cuneate, apex acute to acuminate, briefly apiculate, medium green when fresh, drying dull grey; primary lateral veins pinnate, 4–7 per side, running into marginal vein, interprimary veins almost obscured, all higher order venation reticulate. Petiole pulvinate apically, 6–10 cm, petiolar sheath extending to just below the pulvinus, margins and then whole sheath soon marcescent. Inflorescence 1–6 in each floral sympodium. Peduncle spreading with the spadix erect, much shorter than to exceeding the petiole of the preceding foliage leaf, 4–7 cm, each peduncle subtended by membranous, later papery cataphylls and the whole synflorescence subtended by several such cataphylls. Spathe elongato-ovate, in bud apically strongly rostrate and basally contracted onto the stipe, gaping, then spreading and then reflexed at anthesis, then soon caducous, ca 3.5 by 2.5 cm, creamy green with scattered purple blotches. Spadix stipitate, fertile portion 1.75–2 by 0.5 cm, greenish white at anthesis, green post-anthesis, stipe 0.5–0.8 cm, green. Flowers bisexual, perigone membranous, just exceeding the gynoecium. Stamens: filaments short, broadly linear, anthers shorter than filaments. Gynoecium obpyramidal, tetragonal, stylar region 2 by 3 mm, rhomboidal, truncate, stigma transverse-linear. Fruit a subglobose truncate-topped berry, green when immature, bright glossy red with black stigmatic remains when ripe.
    Diagnostic
    Immediately recognizable by the usually cordate-based laminae and the creamy green spathe limb with purple blotches. In the fresh state leaves are glossy medium green but specimens always dry distinctively dull grey, hence the specific epithet.
    Habitat
    Damp evergreen lowland forest
