<< the San Marcos River starts out in the town
from a gigantic spring that puts out several million gallons of
water daily.  Beginning right past the spring lake dam, the river
banks are covered for miles with a Colocasia that I believe is one
of the Taro types.  The two to three foot tall plants are a nice
color of green with peltate leaves about a foot long.  They don't
form tubers but are very stoloniferous and grow right in the water.

That sounds like C. esculenta var. aquatilis.  I believe some of our friends in Florida could say a few un-complimentary words about that one.
