This is amazing. The last paragraph in the article was particularly provocative.

Indeed, Philcoxia’s murderous habits suggest that we may have underestimated the true number of meat-eating plants in the world. After all, if this rare species feeds on microscopic prey using hidden traps, perhaps other plants do so too. As Mark Chase wrote a few years back, “we may be surrounded by many more murderous plants than we think”.


Almost makes me wonder if it might change how we think of vegetarian food.
