''Rafflesia arnoldii'' is a member of the genus ''Rafflesia''. It is noted for producing the largest individual flower on earth. It has a very strong and horrible odour of decaying flesh, earning it the nickname "corpse flower". It is endemic to the rainforests of Sumatra and possibly Borneo. Although there are some plants with larger flowering organs like the titan arum and talipot palm , those are technically clusters of many flowers.
