That's a beauty Paul! Sure looks different, more rounded, than any of these:

Maybe Hot Chocolate?

The newer one is Odessa, it's difficult to say which it is. It seems the leaves are the same.

Maroon Sensation is similar!

The flower shape and leaf shape are usually different in each named variety but there's so many 'black' ones now it's getting more difficult to separate them.

Could be a Dutch one, the Captain series now has Captain Nuria which looks a good bet.. the flower shape fits, leaves are spotted and by the looks not too broad nor narrow.

I just looked at your second photo and noticed the purple edges to the leaves! Calla Edge of Night has that.

Photo on this link, it's been around a few years now. I had it once but as usual they end up in Calla heaven after a while.

I think you can safely call it Edge of Night, I don't think there's another like it.
