|The two pictures show different plants. The Maroon Shield (my creation) is A. odora x A. cuprea; the first picture looks to be Alocasia "Mayan Mask", a hybrid done by Brian Williams and is a cross of A. odora and A. x amazonica. I chose to cross A. odora with A. sanderiana 'Nobilis', one of the parents of A. x amazonica. A. x amazonica's other parent was A. watsoniana, now known as A. longiloba 'Watsoniana'. I also crossed A. odora with A. watsoniana, which yielded some amazing plants, not yet available on the market.|

The thread "Elephant's Ear (Alocasia 'Maroon Shield'); local botanical garden" in Plant ID forum
And Sandi's is A. "Mayan Mask"?

|Thanks to both of you, @bonitin and @LariAnn for ID of this plant. I was stumped, and knew someone would be able to help me on this website!|
