I thought I had a handle on the large green, entire leaf margin Alocasia. My understanding was that A. gageana had a green erect spathe, leaf sinus reaching petiole; A. odora has a yellow erect spathe, and; A. macrorhiza had a reflexed yellow spathe, with the leaf sinus not reaching the petiole. I am not sure how A. robusta is separated out. So, I am surprised to hear that A. gageana is a nomen dubium. Can you help me out on separating these beasts?

This will be almost certainly Alocasia macrorrhizos in one of its numerous colour forms. Alocasia gageana was described from northern Burma and is an nom. dub.

I purchased a plant labeled as Alocasia gageana aurea variegata but think I read somewhere that aurea is not the proper name. I did a search on the Aroidean but did not find the correct name. I am a novice but would like to make sure the names are correct. I would appreciate any help.
