Hi Mike,
This is a Pseudodracontium species. Since you didn't open the spathe and showed us the naughty bits, there's no way to be sure about the species. I don't know what you are trying to tell us in wiriting that the spadix never elongated past the flowers. The flowers are ON the spadix, as in every aroid. The appendix in Pseudodracontium (the top part of the spadix) is wrinkled or papillate, and that is visible in the picture.
Why it didn't open beyond this point I don't know.

I received this plant as an unknown species ostensibly from Thailand.  Here are some pictures of it's inflorescence.  Any help with an id?

The flower looks most like an A. krausei to me, but I have one of those that flowered and the foliage doesn't look anything like this plant.  (Unless my krausei is misidentified...)

One other possibility I thought was perhaps A. atrorubens?

In most cases when comparing my plant to pictures, two points of departure were that my spathe never opened any further than show in the pictures, and the spadix never elongated past the flowers -- I think both of those might be aberrations due to the immaturity of the plant or some suboptimal environmental condition?

So here are the pics -- any ideas?
