I too have been having the same problem. I thought I had this figured
out but there is still some mystery since I've now been told
supervolute is quite common and the definition is the same as
convolute. Involute appears as two tubes rolled inward. There appears
to be a minor difference between supervolute and convolute but even
though I thought I had that figured out I'm no longer certain. I
ordered a copy of Stern's Botanical Latin which is supposed to make all
this clearer. I would suggest anyone interested order a copy from
Amazon for $20 or less. The difference appears to involve whether
there is a single flower or group involved but I dare not offer what I
understand and would prefer someone with a higher level of education

I tried to undrestand the definition

and I still don't know if I
understand the terms "convolute" and "involute" properly.
Here are links to photos of
convolute and involute vernating leaves of Amorphophallus species.
Is this correctly?
