The Caryophyllales Network strives to assemble an online dynamic synthesis of the order Caryophyllales, uniting the current knowledge about the phylogeny of the order with up-to-date information on the individual taxa contained. Capturing taxonomic data and the decision processes involved in the definition and circumscription of the taxa requires highly complex specialized software. The Caryophyllales Network uses the EDIT Platform for Cybertaxonomy for that purpose. In this context, the family Nepenthaceae was used to demonstrate the steps taken to assemble the database, the interaction with other electronic sources, the links with the World Flora Online initiative, and the prospects for the maintenance and further development of the Nepenthaceae segment of the Caryophyllales database. The dataset represents the output from the respective EDIT Platform database. It is in a format called CDM-light, a strongly simplified relational structure of data held in the object-relational Common Data Model database of the Platform. The data processing related to this output is described in the article cited below (Berendsohn & al. 2018). The dataset here provided was used to generate the supplemental data for that article, representing a snapshot of the state of the database at the time of publication, as an annotated checklist in PDF format. It includes 176 species and nine naturally occurring named hybrids and treats 435 species and infraspecific names.
