Cephalotus (family Cephalotaceae) A genus consisting of 1 species, C. follicularis, which is native to the peat bogs of W. Australia. It is a perennial herb with a woody rhizome and its leaves form a rosette. Many of the leaves are modified as insect-catching, lidded pitchers (resembling Nepenthes). The flowers are small, their parts in sixes, apetalous, and borne on a long scape. Perhaps they are related to Saxifragaceae.
