    Exclamation

    I need to try to work out what this Nep is. I've got an idea, but I'm not sure. All I know for sure is:

    1) It's a species and not a hybrid.
    2) It's from Sumatra
    3) It's highland or at least intermediate.

    Any ideas anyone? No prizes this time.

    Thanks!

    Rob

    I will preface by saying I am not much of a Nep expert but it kind of looks like an alata to me.

    I already replied to the listserve on this, but my guess was a variant of N. eustachya. N. eustachya used to be referred to as the Sumatran form of alata, and as Pyro pointed out, the lid looks very alata-like. The wings look a little more prominent than any pictures I have seen of eustachya.
    Very interesting, Rob [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The plant pictured looks alot like the N angasanensis plant in Neps of Sumatra. I don't think that it's a variety of N eustachya since N eustachya pitchers never have wings.

    I say it's N angasanensis!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Joel,

    I can see what you are saying. My Clarke is buried somewhere(besides I'm at work) since we just moved. What is throwing me off is the coloration, since the species you mentioned is either dark red to almost black in the pics I have seen. Obviously if Rob's plant is not in bright light, that could explain that.
    I know N. eustachya does not have wings like that, which is why I was pondering if it was a new form. BTW, I am not trying to hotly defend my guess, just trying to carry on the debate. I like this kind of discussion.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Looks like N. angasanensis to me.

    Rob, do you have any location data for this plant? I assume not, since I figure you would have mentioned it, but thought I'd ask to be sure.

    My first thought was an unusual colored N.longifolia, but I think its N.angasanensis.
