Which flower is this? (31)

This week we begin again on flowers from South Santo, Vanuatu, where I live.

I'm wondering whether this flower is related to the Red Ginger Flower, which I posted about last year.

See how the green leaves on the flower spike have the same shape and structure as the red ones, here? And the white flowers, though small and unobtrusive in the Red Ginger Flower, are large and obvious in this one.

It has a beautiful fragrance.

But I don’t know exactly what it is, or have a name for it. Can you help?
