    Coolest thing I ever had in my pitchers was the Exyra moth. Very first year I grew CPs. It was so neat! They haven't come back since...

    My larger sarrs will occasionally catch themselves an ichneumon wasp, many of which grow to very large sizes. Lots of European paper wasps and moths as well, which can be fairly large. I too, however, rarely look into the pitchers so one of my plants may have landed an even larger catch, I'm just not sure.

    I have had mature sarrs catch huge moths, so big I wonder how they even fit down the pitcher, but have not taken a pic of those.

    I've seen my Cape catch May flies as pictured in Djoni's picture, too. The big dews and VFTs definitely reign supreme.
