Rafflesia Photo (大花草/大王花相片集)
Rafflesia is a genus of parasitic flowering plants. It was discovered in the Indonesian rain forest by an Indonesian guide working for Dr. Joseph Arnold in 1818, and named after Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, the leader of the expedition. It contains 15-19 species (including four incompletely characterized species as recognized by Meijer 1997), all found in southeastern Asia, on the Malay Peninsula, Borneo, Sumatra and Kalimantan, West Malaysia, and the Philippines.
大花草(Rafflesia)又名大王花,是世界上最大的一種花。生長於印度尼西亞的婆羅洲、蘇門答臘等島嶼。大花草無根無莖,是一種寄生植物,靠吸收葡萄科植物的養分為生。其直徑可達1.4米之大。大花草開花時奇臭無比,發出腐肉味的臭氣,靠吸引甲蟲為其傳粉。
