- Southeast Idaho
Aristolochia grandifolia, Manual Antonio National Park, Costa Rica. The flower emits an odor like rotting meat to attract flies which crawl into a long tube that makes a turn in the back that looks like a u trap in plumbing. The flower needs the fly to polinate it, but this is not a carnivorous flower as the fly is not digested and can escape.
