Anyone have an ID on this?

Hey plant fam! I just picked up this Aglaonema at Walmart. It was the last one and in a post labeled as a Peace Lilly. It had a Costa Farms tag, so I reached out to them to get the ID on its variety. They replied that it is a Dieffenbachia ‘Sparkles’, but this plant has no nodes and different coloring, so I don’t think that is correct. I think it might be an Aglaonema ‘Silver Bay’ (Similar stem color, but this one seems to have more green stripes and less silver leaf centers) or MAYBE a ‘Maria Christina’ (Similar leaf pattern but a bit different stem/leaf color)?

The gray flecks on the leaves with the whitish stems are what are throwing me off. Is there a tricolor variety of Maria possibly?

Thanks for your input! I appreciate your help in IDing this guy!

Chinese Evergreen, I had one of these same variegation
Yeah, I thought my comment went through but I agree. Looks like a Chinese Evergreen.
Thank you both for your help! I agree, I’m just not sure which variety of Chinese Evergreen this one is. 🧐 @LovelyRockweed Do you remember which variety yours was?
@SilkenGrasspea take a picture of it but from a distance… hover above, from the side, looking up from a left or right angle… that’ll help us figure out… It kind of looks like a Finest Diamond as well.
@PlantJedi I accidentally pushed ‘delete’ on my last post instead of ‘edit’ so I posted the question again. Looks like the original one is still there! 😆
@SilkenGrasspea I was like Deja Vu 😂
@PlantJedi Haha my bad!
@SilkenGrasspea zoom out just a little bit more and it’ll be easier.
If it truly is from costa farms I feel it could only be a silver bay. I’ve seen some exactly like this at stores near me labeled as such, so unless costa farms is notorious for mislabeling this is my best guess.
@plantt Ahh, actually scratch that. I believe it’s a ‘Silver Queen’ :))
@plantt Oh, that sure does look like it!
I'm with Autumn! @plantt) I think it's an Aglaonema Silver Queen too, the leaf pattern is really striking! 🤩 She's beautiful!! 💚🥰💚 Xx
@plantt that’s the name! LOL I was thinking about it all night at work.
Silver queen’s leaves are kind of skinny, right? These look thick and oval like a Bay. I thought it was a Diamond Bay but diamonds don’t have a middle line pattern. Looks like some kind of cross Silver Queen Bay. Very unique… a zoomed out picture would really help.
@PlantJedi Thanks! It really didn’t seem to fit into the categories I was trying to put it in. Here is a more zoomed out photo.

I found this image online after searching for ‘Silver Queen’ and the leaf color/pattern looks just like it. Stem is a bit lighter and leaves a tad more oval, but this looks closer than anything I’ve found. Thank you all for your help!!
@SilkenGrasspea yeah that’s some kind of unintentional fusion. I’d put it in the Silver Queen house for the App because their needs are the more complicated of the two.
@SilkenGrasspea literally as I was typing lol…
@PlantJedi Awesome, thanks so much for the advice! Really appreciate it.
