  Can Anyone Identify This Plant?

Can anyone help identify the correct genus and species of this aroid? A friend of mine acquired it about 15 years ago and it was then thought to be a Typhonium, but not yet described to the species level. It is a small plant and the tuber is just large enough that it needs a 5 inch pot. This one has a brownish petiole with spots on it, but he has no photos other than the spathe and spadix.

That’s all the information I have about this plant at this time.

Thanks for your help.

Looks like a Pseudodracontium. I think this is now Amorphophallus. Wilbert Hetterscheid will know exactly what it is.

All the best
