Definitely looks like one of the Pseudodracontiums, as they used to be called, now moved into Amorphophallus, even though they flower at the same time leaves are up.

In 2009 these were available from a plant distribution from MOBOT:






79452 = H.AM.162

Colombia. Valle del Cauca.
Queremal to Anchicayá, ca. 10 km W of Queremal.1100 m 03.33.00N



76149= H.AM.258

Thailand. Si Chang Island (Maxwell-683) (HAM 258)



79453 = H.AM.209




latifolium has green petioles with green spots, harmandii has brown petioles with dark spots. I suppose you can look the others up on the IAS website. Be careful, there is an Am. harmandii, and an Am. pseudoharmandii, you want the latter.

Attached are a few photos of my pseudoharmandii, it doesn't look quite like yours.

I think the HAM accession numbers were originally from Wilbert Hetterscheid? He also used to do distributions, maybe back around 2002 or so?

I should have an old email from him explaining differences in the species, I will have to look.

It’s the next best thing since we unfortunately can’t ask him.

Would probably be best to ask Alan.

Looks like Amorphophallus pseudoharmandii to me but many that used to be in Pseudodracontium look similar.

I apologize in advance if this is a
duplicate - but some email issues on my end are still ironing
themselves out.

I’m submitting this to Aroid-L now because
there are only 70 days left before a submission deadline for the
December IAS Newsletter, Issue 42-04.

So far, I have a Table of Contents with no listings & a
green box on the mailing page reminding members to renew
membership online.

This makes for a very quick read – but some would argue that
it’s not very educational (or interesting, for that matter).

There will be an online supplement entitled “The European Aroid
Community – New Interest in the Age of Social Media” but, as I
mentioned, that will be available online only.

I urge any potential authors to consider contributing to the
printed newsletter.
