Id This an Aroid?

I found this growing from the ground in the woods in Colombia. The overall height of the plant is about 70 cm.

It's an aroid, looks like an Anthurium. Do you have closer photos of the flowers?

Looks like some sort of Alocasia to me

That plant has a geniculum on the petiole, Alocasia don't have them, but Anthurium do. So, most likely Anthurium.
