    This is one unusual looking plant, it makes me think of a Jurassic Park type setting. In fact, the leaf shape and pattern is turtle-light to some extent, and the flower hanging down over the leaf makes me think of the illicium of a deep sea angler fish..Sorry, getting a bit carried away with comparisons.
