I just bought this plant and was looking up information on it and want to know if this is the same as Alocasia amazonica?

I purchased this plant in the fall at the area nursery. The label on it stated very little about it but did say average home temperature of 62-82 degrees. I have it near the south window receiving indirect light and have kept it moist. So far seems to be growing and happy where it is.
