You're right, it's certainly not A. taiwanense. But, from your photos, it could be either a ciliatum if stoloniferous or a consanguineum.
I doubt it is a concinnum.
Best wishes.

> In 2011 I received from the AEG Seed Exchange and planted in the garden seed marked "#16 Arisaema taiwanense". I have my first bloom from that seed right now, but the inflorescense does not resemble the red-brown ones of my 2 mature plants of this species. My bloom on the seedling is green and has a very long tail on the spathe limb (see first photograph).
