Rafflesia azlanii Latiff & Wong

Latiff, A. & M. Wong. 2003. A new species of Rafflesia from Peninsular Malaysia. Folia Malaysiana 4: 135-146.

This species most resembles Rafflesia cantleyi but can be distinguished from it by the presence of fewer, large perigone blotches that tend to merge into one another.
