Hi Marek,

These are certainly popular photographs!

It looks to be a another manifestation of macrorrhizos
(spadix appendix not wider than the male flower zone, spathe limb attenuate and
not fornicate, sinus without leaf tissue.

Dear Marek:

Is this not just Alocasia
macorrhiza?

Dear friends,

My first guess was simply A. macrorrhizos,

but the problem was that I've never seen a real adult plant,

that's why I forwarded the photos here instead of making a page in the ID Center.

However Ms. LariAnn suggested A. brisbanensis and it made me doubtful.

She's been working for many years with this genus, so I can only watch and learn.

Marek
