Dear Ray,
There is a color photo of this species (the book lists two species in this Indian genus) in bloom in The Genera of Araceae, Plate 129 B.   It shows several inflor`s, all shorter than the leaf, arising from spotted cataphylls, they have boat-shaped spathes that are colored light brownish pink, carried at an angle off the peduncles, the club-shaped spadices hang at an angle downwards out of the spathe, pointing at the ground, they are purplish with whitish prominent stigmas.   Hope that this is of help.

>>Can anyone tell me what the spathe looks like on the above re:aroid.  I have
one with 4 ' tall with 4 stalks with peltate leaves .  Thanks for any
assistance given.  Deni Brown's book does give a description on flower.Ray
