Typhonium roxburghii from araceae family
Alibag,18 Jul,2009
It is definitely a Typhonium, and not the common T. trilobatum. Good possibility of being T. roxburghii.
More likely a member of the closely related genus Theriophonum. There is an undescribed Theriophonum growing in Maharashtra near Amba valley that looks similar in leaf but without the flower this plant from Alibag is impossible to ID. The differences between Typhonium and Theriophonum are small and hard to distinguish morphologically but a flower is really needed to positively ID this plant. Typhonium roxburghii generally has broader and shorter leaves.
