Colocasia affinis ?;


Seen in thick dense forest and near a water body in May,2014.

Remusatia vivipara suggested by …
Leaves are different from the usual Colocasia leaves.
Kindly confirm id.


This looks like Colocasia to me.


Remusatia vivipara grows on other trees I hope.


I too think this is Remusatia vivipara  as … opined..

The leaves can approach in size to a Colocasia leaf.. experts may differ..


Looks different from images at Remusatia vivipara (Roxb.) Schott
Maybe some Colocasia species as per discussions in the following threads:
Colocasia species- Kamrup district, Assam
Alocasia sp.(Araceae) for ID(A.fornicata?) 
MS, April,2021/01 Colocasia sp. for id.


Don’t know, Sir, it is not seen here, though the “Bengal Plants” provides KEY –

  • spadix with a barren appendage = AlocasiaColocasia
  • spadix without an appendage = Remusatia
Thank you.


I would go for Steudnera sp. for the plant with very shallow sinus (left) and C. ?affinis for the plant on right (a more pale green blade than C. fallax), but I’m very uncertain on this one.


Are you sure that both images were taken in Jim Corbet as image nos. are widely different?


I checked.

Yes, both images from Jim Corbett National Park, at different locations though.
Clicked on 18th and 20th May, 2014 on my two Lumix cameras.

Colocasia seen deep in the moist forest on 20/5/14.

Species id please.


Growing on steep or vertical slope; it may not be Colocasia. May be Remusatia vivipara, reproductive structures required for proper ID.


This was deep inside the moist forest of Durga Devi area on way to Lohachaur.

It was growing along with some ferns which I will be posting.
The shape of the leaves looked a bit different to me, that’s why I posted on our group.
Unfortunately, I have only one picture and Colocasia came to my mind.
As you know, you are not allowed to get down.


I could find one more picture taken at the Corbett Waterfalls.
Hope this helps.


From another thread (Araceae, Arecaceae and Zingiberaceae Fortnight: August 1 to 14, 2014 : Remusatia vivipara For Validation : Araceae : Jim Corbett : 110814 : AK-4):
“I would go for Steudnera sp. for the plant with very shallow sinus (left) and C. ?affinis for the plant on right (a more pale green blade than C. fallax), but I’m very uncertain on this one.”
