This plant is often mislabeled as an Alocasia.
Note 3: When all plants in cultivation are derived vegetatively from one clone, the latter may then be regarded as a cultivar, which should carry the name C. praetermissum 'Hilo Beauty' or C. 'Hilo Beauty' (the cultivar epithet established by Graf, 1982 as part of the name Aloeasia 'Hilo Beauty').
