LEAVES erect to spreading; petioles 4-13 cm long, weakly sulcate; blades subcoriaceous to moderately thin, usually elliptic, sometimes more or less ovate, 17-21 cm long, 6-10 cm wide, broadest at middle or just below; anterior lobe 15-19 cm long, the margins convex; posterior lobes 1.5-3.5 cm long, from apex of sinus to outermost point; sinus parabolic to weakly hippocrepiform, the apex rounded; both surfaces matte on drying; midrib prominulous above, more prominently raised below (dry); basal veins 3-4 pairs, free to the base, prominulous above, raised below, yellow (dry); primary lateral veins 6-7 per side, departing the midrib at 40-45° angle, straight to collective vein, prominulous above, raised below (dry); lesser veins visible on both surfaces (dry); collective vein arising from the first basal vein, loop-connecting the primary lateral veins, 5-7 mm from margin. INFLORESCENCE erect-spreading (?); peduncle 10-16 cm long, ca. 2 mm diam.; spathe moderately thin, green, lanceolate, 4-6 cm long, ca. 0.9 cm wide, acuminate at apex, acute to more or less rounded at base; spadix stipitate to 1.5 cm, yellow, 6-9 cm long, 5-6 mm diam. near base, 3-4 mm diam. near apex; flowers rhombic, 2.7-3 mm long, 2.2-2.5 mm wide (dry); the sides sigmoid, 3-5 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 5-6 flowers visible in the alternate spiral; lateral tepals 0.6-0.7 mm wide, the inner margins convex; pistils scarcely emergent; stigmas inconspicuous; stamens emerging in a regular sequence throughout the length; anthers held at sides of pistil; thecae ovate, weakly divaricate.
