    General Description
    Epiphyte; internodes usually short, sometimes to as much as 1 cm long, 5 - 10 mm diam.; cataphylls 3.5 - 7.5 cm long, persisting intact at uppermost nodes, then cleanly deciduous. LEAVES: petioles (1.5) 6 - 22 cm long, drying 2 - 4 mm diam., subterete, weakly sulcate adaxially, sheathed 1 - 1.5 cm, only near the base of the petiole; geniculum 1 - 2 cm long; blades linear-lanceolate to oblanceolate-elliptic, 16-36.5 cm long, 3.7 - 12 cm wide, 2.9 - 4.0(5.3) times longer than broad, 1.6 - 1.8 times longer than petioles, narrowly oblanceolate to nearly obovate, broadest usually above the middle, gradually to abruptly long-acuminate at apex; drying matte on both surfaces, dark brown to dark gray-brown above, slightly paler and grayish to yellow-brown below; midrib drying convex on both surfaces, sometimes with an acute rib on the upper surface; primary lateral veins 12 - 15 per side, moderately obscure, drying scarcely more prominent than the interprimary veins, arising at a steep angle then spreading at 25° - 45°; all major veins scarcely raised on either surface; collective veins arising from one of the lower primary lateral veins, usually from the lowermost, sometimes from very near the base, 1 - 4 mm from the margin, not at all loop-connected. INFLORESCENCE subpendent; peduncle 26.5 cm long, usually 3 - 4-winged, rarely terete; spathe green, erect-spreading; spadix 6 - 11 cm long, drying 2 - 5 mm diam., prominently stipitate to 2 - 2.3 cm long (stipe drying 1 - 1.5 mm diam.), green to beige, becoming purple in fruit; flowers 3 per spiral, 2.5 - 2.7 mm long, almost as wide as long; tepals broadly rounded on inner margin, 2-sided on outside margin; stamens closely aggregated around the stigma; anthers 0.4 mm wide, 0.3 mm long, yellowish, drying tan, thecae scarcely divaricate. INFRUCTESCENCE 25 - 38 cm long; berries prominently early-emergent and green, narrowly ovate to obovate, deep purple to red at maturity 0.6 - 1.5 cm long.
