Hello Alison,
It may be a difference only in lighting conditions.
Many Alocasia plants when they are cultivated under strong light,
the underside of the leaves becomes purple or brown and the leaves look darker.
'Polly' has one of the darkest leaves from cultivated Alocasia plants,
just like A. reginula known in trade as A. 'Black Velvet'

Subject: [Aroid-l] Alocasia Black Polly

Dear All,
Adding to the recent discussion of Alocasia Amazonica 
including Black Polly I have found something I haven't yet
The Black Polly plants that I have had for at least a couple of
years are the ones EA has sold with that tag that look a lot like
Amazonica only a little more compact blade and blacker face.
This week at a local greenhouse I found that they had some
there tagged "Black Polly" that were nothing like the EA one.
It was more like a lauterbachii with a very dark cast to it.
Has anyone seen this new appearance in the trade? 
EA stopped selling Amazonica everywhere and now you may be
hard-pressed to find one at all in any box store.  Only the blacker
one, now someone has co opted the name for yet another plant.
I just call them "trade names".
