    One thing to consider is that taxonomy and speciation are man-made distinctions. Yes, they have their criteria, but it isn't a "cut and dry" science. Hence the variety of opinions as to how many species there are, within a given, manmade genus. In my opinion, there are fewer species than there ought and I think some people mix up homology with analogy (similar structure vs. similar function).

    Why does that make it primitive?

    I'm not saying it was primitive because of that (spell check!) I was saying it shouldn't be primitive because of that.

    Oh, sorry, I thought it said "Is S. minor primitive."

    I'd assume that it's most primitive because of the fact that the lid and lip aren't very well formed, like say S. leucophylla or S. purpurea. It's just like a little slit.

    S. minor is not the only one with areoles. S. psittacina does as well.

    S. leucophylla has white patches (Well duh) but AFAIK dude to the structure of the trap those aren't considered areoles. There was another name for areoles... I forget what it was and which one we are using these days.
