    I think that is S. Flava, as far as I know there are no green Oreophila, but the experts here might correct me.

    flava fsho... the lid gives it away, also oreophilla is "the green pitcher plant" for a reason, and flava is "the yellow pitcherplant"

    You have a flava var. flava there.

    Oreophila and flava can both be green, yellow, lightly veined or heavily veined.

    As Alvin said, the names DO NOT tell you everything. Green pitcher plant does not mean it is solely green. Anyone who has seen the pinned topics in this forum should have seen the 2 dishpans I have filled with oreophilas in the part 2 of the pinned pitcher plant topics, Visit to Bugweeds. The color ranges for oreophila are as diverse as the color forms of s. flava. I agree with Alvins ID, 100%!

    O.K. this is for the experts
    How can you tell by this one picture that it's S.f.flava. I know many of the pitchers look like flava but the one thats turned away from the camara looks just like the picture in Schnells section of oreophylla. It has the bulge at the top ( not as nicely tapperd as flava) and the hood columns is not as reflexed as flava. so my question is this, since Sarracenia as a group is so closly related, how do you know there isn't some oreo in there? Are you making an educated guess based on the fact that most of the features look like flava and the one lone pitcher is just an aberation because of the closeness of the family or am I seeing something that isnt there?
