The name ‘Louchapates ‘ [ French for noodle spoon] refers to the shape of the traps, that can grow to a length of 3 centimeters, whereby the extremities of each half of the leaf may grow together. Exposed to direct sunlight it can sometimes lead to the emergence of a red stripe just under the teeth on the outside of the trap.
