  [Aroid-l] tall Alocasia 'Calidora' with a "pseudotrunk"

Dear Pete,


You are correct...I took the term and ran with it. It certainly is not an herbaceous banana stem we are talking about. Thank you for pointing this out.

The new Alocasia sounds very strange...was it from an area newly or rarely botanized? It is amazing that such a large plant has not been recognized earlier. Is it an understory plant or is it found in an open habitat? I have a difficult time visualizing this thing...regarding the almost leafless, terminal tuft...the petioles and lamina are large...how many leaves are in the tuft?
