AbstractNepenthes minima is the first known pyrophytic grassland Nepenthes species from outside Indochina and the Philippines. A member of the sect. Regiae (Borneo, Wallacea, New Guinea) it is restricted to the highland grasslands of Central Sulawesi (Celebes) and has close affinities with Nepenthes maxima. The existence of Nepenthes minima, unique to these grasslands, suggests that they may be natural and predate the human influences that expanded them beginning 2000–3000 BP.
