Thanks for the info, it's not at all condescending, I thought that Borneo was entirly Malaysian - top quality research as you can tell, so i am glad to have been set straight. I will definatly email you!
Did you see the thread 'discovery article on Neps'? It's about searching for N.campanulata in Borneo.
how do you post pics here,i have tried but i dont know how too.any help would be much appreciated
Yeah I did see that article and it annoyed the heck out of me!!
The original campanulata was found at a site called Ilaas Bungaan, a few days walk up a river, in east Kal. I went to east Kal and followed the directions and found the site but it was entirely burnt out. I wasted a total of three weeks in the area looking around for it in other likely places but struck out. I did find mapuluensis which is kinda cool, and a sh*tload of mirabilis. Call me a snob but I don't have either mirabilis or gracilis in my collection as I consider they are almost a noxious weed. There was a VERY interesting mountain that the locals tell me had about 5 different species on it, and from their description one sounded like campanulata. Trouble was they said they had only ever been up the mountain once, in a chopper with some mining people, and they thought it was haunted so I could NOT get anyone to take me up. Also, given that most non CP people cannot tell that lower and upper pitchers (which as you know can be vastly different) are actually the same plant, I guessed that there were more likely 2 or 3 species up there.
Anyway, warrants more investigation but it is HARD WORK in that area!!
Chien Lee is a lucky guy!!
He is extremely good at what he does, and he found campanulata in bloody WEST Kalimanatan I believe.
