Yes, we did sell plants that look exactly like yours. Comparing them side by side with urashima, we decided that your plant is thunbergii, but I could be wrong. They are really not all that different, and characteristics such as color are not very reliable.

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 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?
