The pictures are really interesting. Like you, I've never seen a
"certified" A. triphyllum ssp. quinatum.
There is a colony growing near here that I thought might be quinatum
because of the small size, clear green spathe, and growing in a quite wet
part of a stream bed. The other A. triphyllum there are up a bit in the
slightly dryer ground and have striated spathes with purple-black spathe
limb interiors. However, I don't remember any quite as small as your
specimen. And, I confess, I haven't examined their spadices. (hopefully
that's the plural of spadix)
Thanks for posting the pictures. Most interesting. They should be useful
to Guy now that he's sorting out A. triphyllum.
