  Is this an aroid?

Hello all!

Today I got these photos to identify, but I think the
plant isn't a member of Araceae. What can you say about this?

Looks like Tacca leontopetaloides (Taccaceae). See:

Dear Marek,

this plant is Tacca
leontopetaloides.
I found a tuber of this
plant 2 years ago in Gambia.

Well I may be the odd one out, but I don't believe that it is T.
leontopetaloides - it definitely is a Tacca, but I have the
leontopetaloides species growing and flowering on my deck right now,
and neither the leaf nor the flower cluster are right on. hmmmmm
