  [Aroid-l] Alocasia reticulata??
From: Steve at ExoticRainforest.com (ExoticRainforest) on 2008.02.28 at 17:10:31(17102)

This specimen was given to me by collector Teri Baber with the tag "Alocasia reticulata". However, even though I've found this plant on the web with that name, I cannot find a species with the name on any of the botanical sources. Would one of you Alocasia experts out there tell me if this is a species or possibly a hybrid? I'm also curious if the name possibly originated in one of Graf's books. If it is a species, what is the correct name. And if the name Alocasia reticulata is a hybrid name can someone direct me to the source? It appears to resemble Alocasia zebrina but I can't be certain.
