Only one of the 2 varieties you named are shown in the on-line article (I assume it was the Colocasia)

The thumbnail picture is the Colocasia; the picture in the article body is the Xanthosoma.

The referenced picture, which I also couldn't see in the article by LariAnn, may be traced back to a photo by Tau'olunga, displayed on Wikipedia, with others showing Flora of Tonga. It is captioned, "Xanthosoma sagittifolium (talo futuna) plantation on Tongatapu" and it is attached/inserted here. BTW: My browser is Windows Internet Explorer.
