Affirmative, Globba schomburgkii only
Yes, ... I photographed it a couple of years but got out of season rain.  Beautiful flowers, very aptly named "dancing ladies"...  I sat in the rain and watched them for a few minutes....
Thanks ... for your affirmation.
It reminds me of dancing lady we used to make out of candy wrappers! Two wrappers of 'lords jelly candy' make a lady with red gown! That was four decades ago!
I have taken such like last year

This was seen in a nursery years ago (not seen again).. was posted and I got the generic id.. can this be identified to specific level..
This should be G. schomburgkii

The yellow flowered one is Globba schomburgkii, commonly known as Dancing ladies
