Yep. David is right, no question about it, this is definitely a
begonia. Someone suggested a Rex begonia, but this is a leaf from one
of the cane begonias frequently called 'Angel-Wing' because of the
fancied resemblance to the folded wing of an angel. Easy houseplant,
blooms (in somewhat pendulous clusters) if given enough light.
