Species of genus Arisaema are basically and easily differentiated on the basis of position of leaflets and their number number, in addition to the spathe and spadix characteristics:
1. Leaves with digitate leaflets (palmately arranged, gap on one side).
2. Leaves with pedate leaflets (not arising from same point, especially side leaflets)
3. Leaves with radiate leaflets (uniformly spreading from center).
There are three prominent species belong to the last group in Himalayas: A. erubescence and A. consaguineum with much narrower segments less than 1.5 cm broad, and latter with usually more than 11 leaflets. A. concinnum is easily differentiated by its broader (more than 1.5 cm) leaflets and green spathe with white longitudinal stripes and 2-7 cm long apical tail, the green spadix slightly emerging from spathe.
Perennial herb with depressed-globose tuber; leaf solitary  on up to 50 cm long petiole; leaflets 7-11, radiate, oblanceolate, base cuneate, tip ptolonged into a tail slightly curved down; peduncle shorter than leaf; spathe green (sometimes purple) with longitudinal white stripes, tube 4-8 cm long, limb ovate to deltoid, 2-4 cm broad with 2-7 cm long tail; spadix green, slightly emerging from spathe.


 
The species’ tuber is globose and is 2–7 centimetres (0.79–2.8 in) wide. It have 3 cataphylls which are dark green in colour and carry white spots which are 55 centimetres (22 in) long and have an acute apex. It petiole is 2 centimetres (0.79 in) long while its peduncle is only 75 centimetres (30 in) long with a free part being 9 centimetres (3.5 in). The plant spathe is green in colour and have cylindrical tubes which are 6–7 centimetres (2.4–2.8 in) by 1.5 centimetres (0.59 in) and are sometimes stripeless. The limb of its throat is deep green in colour but can sometimes be with purple coloured outside margin and pale green inside. It is also triangular to ovate and is 8–12 centimetres (3.1–4.7 in) long and 4–8 centimetres (1.6–3.1 in) wide.[1]
