Arisaema galeatum. When you go further east to Arunachal Pradesh the forms get darker and can be completely purple but you really have to go into China to find dahaiense. Dahaiense has bigger inflorescences, more inflated spathe and bigger reticulated “wings”. The leaves also generally lack the yellowish central vein. Both species belong to the same phylogenetic lineage but I have not found dahaiense in India yet.
