Araceae of Maliau Basin, Sabah
Morphospecies 2

Araceae are often found growing near water and this large and beautiful specimen was displaying that habit. Like morphospecies one it also had gutters cut into the leaf to shed water effectivly to allow the stomata to breath and decrese epiphyll cover. The flowers had a distinctive set of dark crimson stripes on the flowers which presumably serves to attract pollinators.
