Subject: [Aroid-l] Alocasia reticulata??

This specimen was given to me by collector Teri Baber with the tag "Alocasia reticulata".  However, even though I've found this plant on the web with that name, I cannot find a species with the name on any of the botanical sources.  Would one of you Alocasia experts out there tell me if this is a species or possibly a hybrid?  I'm also curious if the name possibly originated in one of Graf's books.  If it is a species, what is the correct name.  And if the name Alocasia reticulata is a hybrid name can someone direct me to the source?  It appears to resemble Alocasia zebrina but I can't be certain.
