  Alocasia question
From: "Chanrit Sinhabaedya" siamanthus at hotmail.com> on 2003.10.27 at 16:37:36(10725)
I've just back from Cameron highland in Malaysia.
On the trip I was be able to get a plant of Alocasia that said to be
collected locally in Camerone highland. It has thick lanceolate leaf with
somewhat creeping type of habit.

What could it be? Alocasia peltata? A. perakensis? or A. beccarii?

Thank you.

Hi Chanrit

It's A. perakensis - endemic to the Cameron's. It's related to A. beccarii
and A. peltata (also to A. miniscula) but these are restrcted to Borneo.
It's alos near to A. kerinchiensis (Sumatra - G. Kerinchi)
