There is only one species to be found there.
It is Arisaema touristii.
It is mostly found bordering bodies of water ( swimming pools )
and very often in and around markets and bazaars.
There is a prostrate form often encountered late at night
outside bars and nightclubs. The prostrate form is never pretty.

April fool to you too. (yep it took me that long to get it)
