Surely there is a simple explanation - the catalogue maker is not too
familiar with scientific nomenclature, and is just saying "Alocasia
(Araceae)" - giving the family name and not committing to any further i.d.
than the genus of the plant. [Note that I am refraining from any snotty
comment about people's unwillingness to become comfortable with scientific
names.] derek
