Unknown Amorphophallus species - need help

I recently acquired a small amophophallus tuber like the one pictured from Thailand. I have no clue of any info on it other than just seeing the picture. If anyone recognizes it and knows anything about it, I'd appreciate the help! I blurred out the name of the business that was across the picture to protect their identity. Please let me know! Thanks all!

It's an Amorphophallus paeoniifolius, but it's been "doctored". Some one has cut out the top of the spathe leaving the flowering part at the bottom. This is a photo of mine in flower.

Thanks for your help! That's the only amorph that looked close to it. Makes sense. That is a species that I don't have but wanted also, so it works out!

A 'slip of the tongue', I meant to say the SPADIX was cut off, not the spathe. Didn't notice that until I re-read it just now. They're very common here, they're a native. I had some fill brought in and a big plant of A. paeoniifolius came up out of it last year. I already had about 100 plants anyway.
