    Maybe African Mask/ Alocasia Poly(?). According to sources, African Mask is a hybrid (not a species) of “Alocasia longiloba Miq. (formerly known as the synonym A. watsoniana Hort.) x Alocasia sanderiana Hort”. It’s commercial name “Alocasia Amazonia”is not a scientific name. I’m not an expert of this Alocasia genus, however due to miss identification, Africa Mask is also listed with an incorrect name “as Alocasia x amazonica”. The name common “Elephant Ear” is also shared by several species in the Aclocasia genus. Best wishes!
