Carnivorous Plant Scientific Classification
There is no one correct classification system agreed upon by botanists. Even the names given to groups can vary among them. The organization used below is offered as one possibility and serves as a guide. For simplicity only the more common vascular plants are included here, even though there are carnivorous fungi. Four specific examples are given: a carnivorous bromeliad, Brocchinia reducta; Venus Flytrap, Dionaea muscipula; Intermediate Sundew, Drosera intermedia; and the Yellow Pitcher Plant, Sarracenia flava.
