In my experience, the seed heads of A. triphyllum are much more 
robust than those of A. dracontium and the berries ripen to a red 
color, whereas those of A. dracontium remain green, maturing to a 
greenish-cream.  Also, on my dracontiums, the spath remains much more 
evident (at maturity), while the spath of triphyllum deteriorates.
