Dorstenia, a strange looking plant.

My Australian based Facebook friend does it again. She posted this photo in our Handbook of Philippine plants and flowers page and I just have to ask more knowledgeable people in the species identification business. Someone remarked that this flower is of a dorstenia, but what dorstenia? Is is a Congo fig [dorstenia elata] or a dorstenia indica?

Here is a close up of the strange flower.
