    Stem shortened. LEAVES: Petiole subterete, mildly sulcate adaxially, 11/2 - 2 times longer than blade, 3-5 dm [30 - 50 cm] long; geniculum 2-3 cm long, slightly thick; blades parchment-like, smooth and polished above, shiny, dark green, paler below, oblong-cordate, acuminate; posterior lobes of the juvenile plant semiorbicular, of the adult semiovate, 1/5-1/6 as long as anterior lobe [literally "equalling 1/5-1/6 of the anterior lobe in length"]; sinus subtrianguIar; adult blades 2.5-4 dm [25 - 40 cm] long, 1.5-2 dm [15 - 20 cm] wide; basal veins 3 pairs, the innermost, together with 5-6 pairs of costal spreading at about a 90 degree angle, joined in a collective vein 1-2 cm from the margin, two exterior [veins] retrorse, joined at the base of the posterior lobe, decidedly arcuate, excurrent into the margin. INFLORESCENCE: Peduncle longer than petiole, 4-5 dm [40 - 50 cm] long; spathe broadly linear-lanceolate, decurrent at the base, narrowly cuspidate at the apex, half as long as spadix, 6-7 cm long, 1-1.5 cm wide; cusp 5-7 mm long; spadix scarcely stipitate, caudiform, brown purple, 1.2-1.8 dm [12 - 18 cm] long, 6-10 mm diam. at the bottom, attenuate gradually toward the apex.

    Stem up to 1.5 cm thick. Cataphylls 8 - 10 cm long. LEAVES: Petiole sulcate adaxially, 25 - 40 cm long, geniculum 2 - 3 cm long and shallowly sulcate. Leaf blade oblong-ovate-cordate, [outline] curving at first extrorsely and then introrsely, gradually contracted into a long cusp, 20 - 25 cm lolng, lower third 12 - 14 cm wide, posterior lobes rounded, separated by a shallow, acute-angled sinus, basal primary lateral veins 3 on each side, the innermost curving below and transforming into a collective vein 2 cm distant from the margin, the next outermost exiting into the margin in the lowermost third of the leaf blade, the outermost very slender, strongly curved, soon terminating in the margin, primary lateral veins of the midrib ca. 10 on each side, distant from one another, patent. INFLORESCENCE: Peduncle a little longer than the petiole, 25 - 40 cm long. Spathe linear-lanceolate, cuspidate, a little decurrent at the base, about 5 cm long, with a cusp 0.5 cm long.
