my unknown ceph. has a forked cap?

I mentioned in my previous post that i have an unknown cephalotus he said it could be a hummers. I forgot to mention that one of the pitchers has a forked cap. Any clues why or what type it is.

Looks like it couldn't decide if it wanted to make a leaf or a pitcher. :p

Cephalotus does make weird hybrid leaves occasionally. I've never seen this particular one though.
Lol it was a confused pitcher. Nice thanks. Its so perfectly forked.
In Lloyd's book 'The Carnivorous plants' plate 10 illustrates five of these "intergradient forms of leaves between the foliage leaf and pitcher".

They are interesting in that they may reveal features of the evolution of the pitcher structure.
