Spathicarpa inflorescence

I've seen this in Anthurium sect. Pachyneurium in the past, but this is the
first in Spathicarpa...3 peduncles fused together from its growing point to
the spathe delineation...so, the fused peduncle is 13 cm long, 8 mm wide
with a few obscure ribs, and holds 3 separate spathes...sort of like a
3-headed monster.  The same plant also has a spathe with a second distorted
spathe formed at the base of a normal spathe...
