The Philippine Amorphophallus could be either Am. plicatus, although this
one is only known as an endemic from Sulawesi or it is an undescribed new
species close to it. A few decades ago a similar species was collected on
Mt. Makiling and probably a new species but the sole herbarium specimen was
destroyed by herbarium beetles. There is need for a second specimen to get
this one published.
The Pseudodracontium cannot be identified for sure without close-ups of the
naughty bits but its general appearance suggests P. lacourii.
The Typhonium on the page is indeed T. cordifolium.
I'll contact you privately for more details and questions.
