Description: Spathe and spadix of Monstera barrieri based on O. Poncy 1700 from Camp Arataye on the Apporuagues River, French Guiana. Note that the spathe is cucullate or hood-shaped, i,e. it arches over the opening to the spathe. Note that the flowers are bisexual and completely lack a perianth and, thus, could be called naked.,
