From Sam's nursery in Hawaii, there are roughly 2 different looking 'Song of Melancholy' plants. Here's some history on them from Flora Nepenthecae forum as written by Sam:
"N. Song of Melancholy is a N. boschiana grex that seeded in rainforest's collection. He sent seeds to a number of different people (capslock has some) but I think I got the lion's share. There are probably two fathers involved as some have dark peristomes and look very much like N. spahtulata x maxima or N. spathulata x boschiana while other have great stripping on the peristomes and look more like N. x Tiveyi.
The suspected father of the ones with the stripes is N. spectabilis x veitchii."

So, the one you'll be bidding on, *isn't* one of the stripey ones, but is still a nice beastly looking plant. Here are pictures:
