Hi fella neps...sometimes ago i posted a photo of albormarginata,and i found in the small booklet by chien Lee on page 33 ( pitcher plants of Sarawak ) is in fact a natural hybrid N.x cincta ( northiana x albormarginata).The slender leaves represent those of reinwardtiana,the beautiful wide peristome of northiana are gone,replaced by thin cylinderical peristome of albo. The colouration ranging from cream to dusky purple with red or black spot,pitchers are narrow and funnel shaped.
..a closer look of the peristome...
On my last weekend trip to one of Borneo highlands above 1,000' elevation i came across an unusual ( maybe ? ) a natural hybrid betwen reinwardtiana and gracilis. The leaves and pitchers colouration represent those of gracilis,but slightly bulbose at the lower like the original reinward and still retaining the 2 eye spot.
There are lots of ampullaria(various colours),trichocarpa,mirabilis(green, light red),gracilis( green, red ),and reinwardtiana (green form ). So far no other intersting hybrids or red form gracilis x reinward are found, as i spent a short time there due to heavy wind and rain.
