|Plants in the genus Stapelia are also called "carrion
flowers". They are small, spineless, cactus-like succulent plants. Most
species are native to South Africa. The
flowers of all species are hairy to varying degrees and generate the
odor of rotten flesh. The color of the flowers also mimics rotting meat.
This attracts scavenging flies, for pollination.
