Amorphophallus:

Amorphophallus, a genus encompassing over 200 species, is commonly known as Corpse Flowers due to their distinct odor, often likened to foul or rotting flesh. This odor plays a pivotal role in their reproductive strategy by attracting specific pollinators like carrion beetles and flies, typically drawn to decaying organic matter. This unique adaptation ensures the plant's successful pollination, highlighting its reliance on these specific insect pollinators for reproduction.
