    Redflytrap here, chiming in...

    I am the offender in question.

    I have contacted Heli regarding the "villosa" in question.
    I am a little confused, to say the least.

    This whole situation has really gotten out of control.
    I am more than happy to return the package in transit to my person, back
    to Heli. I would only like to right this incident.

    Again, I am terribly sorry for all this confusion.

    I have added pictures of some more "known" N. villosa.
    These, however, are from seed, grown by Bigbella.

    What gets me, however, is that my plant came from Michael Catalani.
    And again for posterity, it was labeled as: BE-3225.
    As far as I am concerned, it should not be possible that any mix-up
    could have occurred... As I said before, I am sorry for the confusion,
    but I don't understand how this started in the first place.

    In all fairness though, this trade was for you Heli...
    So, what do you want me to do?

    Hi Jack,

    Thanks for stopping in. Mixups happen! I would contact Michael and let him know the plant you received on such and such date appears to be incorrectly identified. I am sure he would like a heads up so he can check his records and imports. It would be unusual for BE to mix up the two but maybe it was a rogue plant.. it can happen. Maybe someone at CPJ goofed.. who knows. But I pointed it out because I am fairly confident of the error and if your plant is mislabelled then maybe some others are too

    Nice seed grown plants there. If you look closely I think you can see the subtle differences between them and the plant in question. Especially with regard to the fuzzier thinner longer tendril, more horizontal pitcher opening with more pronounced ridges and teeth. The upper part of the pitcher is more upright and in many cases seems to flair a bit right below the peristome. As well as the less pronounced wings with the shorter more numberous hairs.
