Sumatran corpse flower: carrion beetle
Carrion beetles as well as a variety of other carrion insects are so attracted
to this odorous plant that they will crawl or fly inside in search of excrement
or decomposing flesh. The spadix (the large object seen here protruding from
the plant) is the source of the smell and is also covered in the plant's
pollen, which the pollinators unknowingly carry to other plants of the species
as they continue their search for food.
