ID needed

Hi everyone,

I just returned from a trip to Tahiti and Moorea.  My exploration time was
limited, but in addition to the all-present Colocasia and Xanthosoma,  I
happened upon what is presumably an Amorphophallus species.  It resembles
A. konjac except that it has noticable tubercles on the petiole, there are
numerous (well, 3) leaves present at the same time, and the leaf surface is
more glossy.

I've asked Les to put them on the Aroid ID Web Site, but in the meantime,
you can view them at:

http://www.execpc.com/~llmen/mooreamorpho2.jpg      note multiple petioles
http://www.execpc.com/~llmen/mooreamorpho3.jpg      note shiny leaf surface

Suggestions anyone?
