The image shows Alocasia epilithica sp. nov. growing on a wall of limestone in Myanmar. Karst-limestone formations appear important to this species, as this was typical of two other localities where it was found in Thailand. Other taxonomically-related Alocasia species are also closely connected with Karst-limestone formations. The authors of this study Hein et al. state that the discovery of this species is yet another example of the close phytogeographic connection between the Malay peninsula and Borneo.
