    Cephalotus have absolutely no similarities in pitcher structure to Nepenthes other than the fact that they're pitchers. No other pitcher has trap attachment near the top of the pitcher, four wings, specialized digestive patches rather than spread out glands, or regular production of intermediate photosynthetic leaves/traps between seasons. They don't produce useless traps, only intermediate leaves which are not the same thing.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    The ICPS has a nice page about Cephalotus phylogeny and carnivory in the Oxalidales here:
