Hydnophytum guppyanum.

Observed: 1st August 2011 By: derrick.rowederrick.rowe’s reputation in Plants
24 Hydnophytum guppyanum, Tunurua mangrove swamp near  Arawa, Bougainville Isl.

This type tended to grow in higher positions than other congeners in the forest. The 'ant-house' tuber is reminiscent of the weird Squamellaria spp., that however, are endemic to a few northern Fijian islands.
Once again probably world first photos.

    Likely ID

    Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be.
