    We already know that rapid spurts in Angiosperm evolution do occur, with the great radiation at the end of the Cretaceous period being case and point, with many very distinct families emerging a short timeframe. Therefore, knowing that this can and does occur , it is not a stretch of the imagination that this can happen farther in the past. The figure is high because several seed plant groups would have diverged after the flowering plants (Ginkgophyta) something that we currently have no evidence for.
    that makes no logic

    Whoa! I a pitcher plant that grows on a stalk would've been cool! Too bad it went extinct. :/

    Squash the stem down and reform the pitchers and you have an S. purpurea.

    I remember a guy saying he discovered a species/genus somewhere in papua that looked like a cross between a Darlingtonia and a Sarracenia. Nothing ever became of that, so I guess it was all made up. If it was real and he knew where it was at he has no reason not to go on an expedition and collect it. He's be famous. If he couldn't afford to go again, i'm sure one of the other great CP explorers would gladly go with him and chip in on the journey. I'd settle for a picture.
