Pitcher Plants of Peninsular Malaysia & Singapore Roger Shivas 1984 English Maruzen Asia xii + 58 24 pages of plates not included in page count "It was the author's intention to make this book serve as a field guide and he succeeded in this by giving us good closeup pictures of upper, lower and sometimes intermediate pitchers of all 12 species that are described. Although the book is small, and ideal for field use, it does not lack any of the essential information that one needs to use in finding these plants and admiring them."[5]
The Grief Vanishing – Nepenthes[6]
(無憂草 – Nepenthes Muyū kusa – Nepenthes?)

A Guide to the Pitcher Plants of Sabah Charles Clarke 2001 English Natural History Publications (Borneo) iv + 40 field guide "The photos are simply incredible, and the book covers important information such as natural habitats.

A Guide to the Pitcher Plants of Peninsular Malaysia Charles Clarke 2002 English Natural History Publications (Borneo) iv + 32 field guide "As usual for one of Clarke's books, the text is concise, well written and accurate.

Pitcher Plants of Sarawak Charles Clarke & Ch'ien Lee 2004 English Natural History Publications (Borneo) vi + 81 pocket field guide; mainly illustrated with photographs by Ch'ien Lee "This is a wonderful introduction to the species that grow in this area and is in full colour. With an introduction to Nepenthes, the 25 species plus an environmental examination it whets your appetite to want to visit this area or at least grow the plants."[11]
"As usual with Clarke's books, the photographs are excellent."[6]
