Assuming that A. wilsonii = A. elephas, Guy says that the Chen Yi plants
match A. elephas exactly,  except for the spadix color, and a few other
minor things, and are possibly a variety of subspecies of A. elephas.

Guy has suggested possibly A. elephas v. dilatatum, but I guess that if
you (Greg) tell us that the type specimen of A. dilatatum doesn't have
bumpy petioles this won't work.  Hmmm.  Okay, folks.
