Funny how things come around again, isn't it?  This exact
same discussion was on here two or three years ago.  So,
which giant jungle vine is the host?  (I suspect different
ones for different Rafflesia species, of which there are at
least a dozen.)  It's enough to make me wish I'd gotten that
"Rafflesias of the World" book at the airport on my last
trip to Malaysia (the symposium, you all remember that).
