Nepenthes are perhaps the most fascinating and primitive carnivorous plants on planet earth.

This app is a Nepenthes field reference, with entries for all current species that include:

- two representative pitcher photographs for each species
- a description that includes guidance on pronunciation, species distribution, range, altitude and additional field notes
- a simple picture quiz to help you learn to identify them
- no in-app banners or ads

Nepenthes entries are based on scientific data from titles published by Redfern Natural History Productions Limited. These books are available for purchase online at:
