Hello

This is A. odora in 95%
When not in bloom you can distinguish them by leaves
A. odora had slightly peltate leaves, macrorhiza not
what is easiest to see in young plants, because an adult
A. odora sometimes produces almost non-peltate leaves

The inflorescences are more different:
You can compare them here

A. odora: http://www.roberek.net/abrimaal/araceum/alocasia/macroinf2.jpg (don't be deceived by the filename, initially I also had a poblem with these two)

A. macrorhiza: http://www.csdl.tamu.edu/FLORA/beverly/bt0104.jpg

Is this Alocasia macrorrhiza or odora in the photos? It is growing naturalized in a nearby swampy area. There are 2 big patches of this Alocasia.

What is the main differences between the 2 species?
