My husband has asked me to put these up here: pix from a recent trip to Cameron Highlands of Rafflesia cantleyi, bud and flowers and the host vine. (The flowers are parasitic, and leafless.)
The thing that really impresses me about these things is how the fertilised seed ever finds the right host vine in the rainforest. Needles in a haystack would be a cinch by comparison.
