Amorphophallus paeoniifolius ?;

Attached is a picture of Amorphophallus paeoniifolius captured at Konkan, Maharashtra in November 2012.
Requested to please validate the ID.

the stalk of Amorphophallus paeoniifolius is short where as that of A. commutatus is about 30 cm long or more.

I think, this stalk may be around 30 cm, though not sure about it….

ID seems OK.

Arisaema tortuosum (Wall.) Schott. SN Aug 52 : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (3).
Arisaema tortuosum (Wall.) Schott., common herb in the shady forest floor, roadsides western ghats area adjacent to west cost, now in fruiting.

This is the fruit of a species of Amorphophallus [possibly A. commutatus]. Please check the archives of this group for my photographs of this.

Yes, the leaves resemble more to Amorphophallus than Arisaema.

I agree with …; it is Amorphophallus sp.
It is possible that they grow in the same habitat thus can cause confusion. But they are easily distinguishable by their leaf, flower/infl. etc.
Here is the key from Flora of China:

Leaves variously divided (most commonly pedate to pedatisect but not decompound), very rarely entire; berries ripening reddish.  Arisaema
+ Leaves commonly solitary, usually decompound, very rarely pedate, never entire; berries ripening red or blue.  Amorphophallus
