Dear Julius,

The Xanthosoma pictures only have inflorescences, so I think my
guess will not be specially accurated. Being Xanthosomas, even with pictures
of flowers, leaves, stems, chromosome numbers and a complete genome it
would be difficult to ID anyway!!!! Here we go: If it have huge sagittate
leaves and erect caulescent stems, it could be X. hylaea (=X. purpurata) or
any "species" of the X. undipes complex (probably more than 2 species
involved). Tom has collected a lot in Ecuador. Maybe he knows exactly which
species in the Podocarpus park has spathe tube dark purple inside.

Very best wishes,
