David, in the wild Cypella herberti has been mentioned as pollinated by native bees (solitary, make their "hives" underground) but most often I have noticed beetles on them and they eat good portions of the flowers. 
The bottom of the cup is more clear in several species of Cypella and may be seen as a circle of light  by the insect flying downwards to the flower.
