This hybrid accidentially popped up among a sowing of Aristolochia insolita. Apparently both its parents A. insolita and A. gigantea were kept next to each other eventually leading to cross-pollination.

 

I got to see the flower only once, like Aristolochia insolita this hybrid seems to be terribly lazy-flowering.
