About this app

It requires Android 4.1 or higher.

Nepenthes are perhaps the most fascinating and specialised carnivorous plants on planet Earth.

Nepy is a Nepenthes field reference, containing fully illustrated entries for the majority of recognised species that include:

- two representative pitcher photographs for each species
- a description that includes guidance on pronunciation, species distribution, range, elevation and additional field notes
- a simple picture quiz to help you learn to identify them
- no in-app banners or ads

The Nepenthes entries based primarily on data published in peer reviewed research papers, specialist literature relating to the genus, as well as on the general observations of a number of specialists. However, all entries are written in accessible English.

All images are used under licence either from Redfern Natural History Productions (UK) Ltd or directly from the credited authors. Image copyright remains explicitly with the image author indicated.

Amazing app with almost all required species. Edit : An option to filter species based on elevation would be helpful. Also, some newer species are missing. The app needs an update

The should be more apps like this. It has a ton of nepenthes species to study with the images of the upper and lower pitchers. Even a quiz. It would be nice if there was a category for some interesting hybrids.. but it is a lot of work.. there are so many.

Fantastic app! As a Nepenthes hobbyist, I use it almost daily. Only issue now is from the latest Android update, the text page (third page) no longer displays anything. It's just a blank page. Update: works fine now with latest Android, so five stars!
