Alocasia acuminata Schott (inflorescence usually solitary)?


same alocasia ?


For the same reason as I have explained in your thread I suggested it to be A. acuminata. But again I request you to check the population, for you should have A. acuminata, A. fallax (according to Hooker similar to A. fornicata; maybe A. navicularis as per http://www.aroid.org/aroidl-archive/showthread.php?id=724).

Some Colocasia species?


To me, this is Apoballis rupestris (Zoll. & Moritzi ex Zoll.) S.Y.Wong & P.C.Boyce.


It is Apoballis rupestris NOT Colocasia. I have got both species at home.


A reply from another thread:

“I have just downloaded and expanded this photo. NOT Schismatoglottis. This is Alocasia, but I cannot name to species. Note the synandria and the sinuous interprimary collecting vein.”


Perhaps Alocasia acuminata

It looks like Alocasia calidora


What are the species of Alocasia reported from your area?
Pl. check with images at Alocasia acuminata Schott ?


Only Alocasia fallax was recorded in the Flora of the Lushai Hills. Sorry ! I don’t have Flora of Mizoram vol. 3 for checking. I think it is A.acuminata


At least one more is reported from there – Alocasia fornicata –

  1. Research Gate
  2. Niscair
Thank you.
