Product information "Nepenthes spec. "pseudoklossii" (Angemuk, Irian Jaya)"
This still undescribed species is reminiscent of Nepenthes klossii and therefore often circulates provisionally among collectors as Nepenthes "pseudoklossii".
Like Nepenthes klosiii it forms a hood that attracts flying insects with nectar to the peristome. The semi-transparent, translucent back signals an exit to the insects and ensures that they fly directly into the pitcher. The same trapping mechanism can otherwise only be observed in the genus in Nepenthes aristolochioides, which forms very similar but smaller pitchers.
