Unknown Amorphophallus - a second look

I have looked at some photos and found that this tiny Thai species is certainly not A. obscurus as initially thought. The small bloom stand at about 8cm tall. As for its ID, I am clueless - any help is appreciated !

And I am even more clueless, but that is one amazing flower! I haven't seen an amorphophallus with a spike that tall and skinny before!

the good people from Aroid-L have identified this as A. obscurus. Apparently the spadix length can be rather variable.
