What you got from Kaichen is a green-spathed form of Arisaema engleri. A. sikokianum does not grow in China; it is endemic to Shikoku, Japan.
A. engleri, which has also red-spathed forms, grows in C and E China.
There is a confusion in the Flora of China, in its Chinese version (1979), which was dicussed and clarified in The Genus Arisaema (page 242-243) where all synonyms are given.
