This is one of the 15 species of Rafflesia in Indonesia.. R. padma lives as a parasite on the Tetrastigma vine. Not as big as R. arnoldii, but I like it, it looks very similar..
I found this at Pangandaran Nature Reserve. Endemic to Java Island.
the 4th and the 5th pics are the bud of the flower, it takes about 2 weeks to become the flower, and the flower will last for 5 until 7 days..
