Additionally, four families are endemic: Ecdeiocoleaceae, Emblingiaceae, Eremosynaceae and the monotypic Cephalotaceae, which is represented by the Albany pitcher plant (Cephalotus follicularis, VU), a carnivorous plant that traps insects in its modified leaves.
Relicts with rainforest affinities include Anthoceris sylvicola, Cephalotus follicularis, and Podocarpus drouynianus.
The species-rich Albany region is located within this ecoregion and contains many local endemics, including the monotypic Albany pitcher plant (Cephalotus follicularis) (Cephalotaceae), which belongs to one of the few families endemic to the southwest of Australia.
The leafless acacias are also found here, as well as the _Nepenthes distillatoria_ and the _Cephalotus follicularis_, two remarkable varieties of the monkey-cup or pitcher-plant; while many very beautiful ferns and flowering vines adorn the coasts and lave their graceful fringes in the blue ocean waves.
In _Cephalotus follicularis_ rudimentary or imperfect pitchers may be frequently met with, in which the stalk of the leaf is tubular and bears at its extremity a very small rudimentary leaf-blade.
