Got the answer:
Short Version:
Per Mobot, the accepted name for Thomsonia Wall is Amorphophallus Blume ex Decne. fide Mayo ex S.J.J. Bogner et P.C. Boyce, 1997 in The Genera of Araceae

Long Version:
Per Bogner and Boyce, Thomsonia Wall. was moved into synonymy with Amorphophallus Blume ex Decaisne. The reason for the move was that Thomsonia constitutes a rejected name per the rules of the ICBN (International Code of Botanical Nomenclature). MOBOT is the Missouri Botanical Garden, which has an up-to-date plant data base in which we can check synonymies. With Thomsonia rejected in favor of Amorphophallus, the specific epithets move to Amorphophallus. The basionym (original name ) was published in 1830 in Plantae Asiaticae Rariores 1: 83. 1830. {Pl. Asiat. Rar. } by Wall. and fide means "by the word of..."; ex as in Blume ex Decaisne means that the name was validly published by Decaisne who ascribed the original name to Blume, the later not having published the name validly. The ex connects the two authors of the name. These are all nomenclatural standards set forth by the ICBN. It basically means that the generic name Thomsonia was replaced by Amorphophallus in 1997.
