Nepenthes reinwardtiana

Nepenthes reinwardtiana

One of the characteristics of this carnivorous plant from Borneo are the 2 barely discernible "eye spots" on the rear wall of the pitcher. They become very dark in the UV version, along with the peristome (the ring around the top of the pitcher). Their function remains unknown!
