Abstract


Most members of family Rafflesiaceae are  rare plants which found only in a restricted area in Southeast Asia. As a holoparasitic plant Rafflesia totally depends on the specific host plant in specific habitat. The rarity of Rafflesia caused the limited number of research of many biological aspects of this species.  In this study, observations on the fruit and seed  of R. patma and R. arnoldii were carried out  in its habitat and laboratory. Figures and dimension of the seeds was recorded by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM).
