The spathe reminds of a SINARISAEMA. consanguineum-like.
There is one Sinarisaema in the Philippines called Arisaema polyphyllum, but the spathe is always dark red, white striated! To my knowledge, the presence of a green spathe of A. polyphyllum has never been reported.
This suggests a lot of questions:
Is this a photo of a plant collected in the wild, in the Philippines?
Have you information about the leaf?
Are there more photos, you sent one only, of the spathe?
In any event, I am afraid it is not A. yunnanense because of the spadix.
The second species present in the Philippines, A. laminatum, is completely different.
