This species differs strikingly in habit from the others in having the urns crowded near the surface of the ground. They are also very different in shape, being somewhat of the form and size of an egg inflated like a bladder, and the membrane thinner and more delicate than in the other species. The inverted rim is broad, and projects far into the cavity of the cup, forming a trap, in which numbers of flies and insects are taken.
Native to Singapore, Borneo, Sumatra, Malaysia, Thailand.
Discovered by William Jack in 1819.
