The plant that Jim McClements mentions is common in places in central
Alabama where it grows in wet places with triphyllum but blooms later.
It usually has one leaf with five fully formed leaflets.  As Jim noted,
the spadix is slender and inclined forward to the front of the spathe
tube, quite different from triphyllum that I have seen.  In this
respect it resembles the spadix of A. yamatense.
