    Heliamphora huberi . . .

    It looks as though the interim name of Heliamphora sp. "Amuri" has finally been replaced with Heliamphora huberi. Heliamphora sp. "Lowland" has also been renamed, and is now known as Heliamphora ciliata. The description, for any of those interested, is available in its entirety, at:

    http://www.ingentaconnect.com/conten...00002/art00006

    "Adding the three newly described species Heliamphora uncinata, H. ciliata and H. huberi to those recognised in the last treatments (Berry & al. 2005; McPherson 2006), the neotropical pitcher plant genus Heliamphora now comprises 18 species. Therefore, it represents the most species rich genus of the Sarraceniaceae, outnumbering the North American pitcher plant genus Sarracenia L., which includes eight species (Schnell 2002). Eleven of the currently known species of Heliamphora had been discovered just in the last few decades . . ."

    Wow, those are great looking. H. huberi is a curious name, I wonder who it was named after.
