|1874||"Crinoida Dajeeana" / "The Man-Eating Tree (of Madagascar)"||Spencer, Edmund (anonymously)||TBA||
A hoaxed news item frequently reprinted until at least the 1920s,
having originally appeared in The New York World, where Spencer was a staff writer. The original article claims to reproduce a letter from one Karl Leche (sometimes spelled "Carl Liche") to a Dr. Omelius Friedlowsky, telling of the former's discovery of a horrific, tentaculate pitcher plant in the jungles of Madagascar. Later published as an acknowledged fiction, this narrative is undoubtedly one of the most important and influential documents in the history of the modern monster plant.
