Please identify this flower taken in Nagaland just before the border from Assam?

Growing low on the ground near the road.

Could it be a begonia species?

Definitely Begonia sp.

Potentially B. beddomei, but the photo is not good enough to ID

I guess looks close.

This could be B. beddomei. This is a poorly known species which has never been photographed. It is unusual in the section (Platycentrum) in have a tuberous habit and no cauline leaves. Very interesting!

Begonia picta ?

Looking at the image quality it is difficult to decide but may be correct ! Dr. Marc has suggested as B. beddomei which may be correct but not sufficient information to verify !
