Tacca chantrieri is also known as the bat flower. You can probably see why. Those black, bat-like flowers can apparently grow up to 30cm in diameter!

They're shade loving plants which grow in the forest understorey across Southeast Asia and Southern China. They're also related to yams.



@InvaderXan I believed everything you wrote until the yams. I think the bats have overcome your senses.
