The picture is said to be taken in a mountainous region in Southern China. The "flower" looks meaty with "eye balls" near the center. The environment is damp; in shade under bamboos.

It does appear to be a ginger, but it's the seed pods that have split open with ripe seeds inside, not a flower. I can't tell what genus it is from that, but definitely not a curcuma.
