Barry: I think I got it from you. Did you used to sell that one? 


One reason I did not think it was ssp. thunbergii is that the part of the
spadix appendix as it first exits the tube appears to be white and much
wider on the illustration and photo of ssp. thunbergii, than it is when it
narrows into the long tail/thread. My spadix appendage does not look like
that, and it is uniform in color its entire length and not a lot thicker at
the base.  My long thread is colored purple though, not carmine. And inside
of spathe is all purple on my plant. Gusman's picture of urashima has inside
of spathe with some white and a lighter colored thread, but he also says
there is color variation in different forms.

I have had this plant for many years but now is the first time it has
bloomed. I think I probably got it from Asiatica years ago. The tag is long
gone, but I think it must be A. thunbergii ssp. urashima.

Relatively short plant with a single horseshoe rachis well above the
infloresence with purple spathe limb. lighter tube, but extremely long
thread at the end of the appendage. I have never had a flower of one, so
used my Gusman book to try to ID it. Book says there is variation in the
spathe colors. Is that what it is?
