All three families are carnivorous plant families. The Droseraceae contains three extant genera: Drosera (sundews), which catch insects with adhesive droplets; and Dionaea (Venus flytrap) and Aldrovanda (waterwheel plant), which capture them in leaves with interlocking teeth. The other two families include pitcher plants, which drown their prey.
