    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to let everyone know about a new species of Nepenthes which was recently published: Nepenthes rigidifolia Akhriadi, Hernawati & Tamin (Reinwardtia Vol. 12 (2) 2004: pp 141-144.)

    I have just received a copy of the publication from the authors and the taxon appears to be identical to one that I had been working on, namely Nepenthes aptera (ined.). Growers of this plant might want to make a note of the new correct name in their collection before it leads to confusion in the future (N. aptera is invalid).

    It looks as if the authors found the plants at the same site I had, and they agree that it is nearly extinct in the wild due to land clearing in the area. I'd be keen to hear from any growers out there who have managed to flower this plant in cultivation.

    Best regards,

    Ch'ien Lee

    Hi Ch'ien!
    Nice to see you pop in now and again.
    Ugh. Tamin likes to name things, doesn't he? I remember the CPN with Clarke visiting Sumatra and disagreeing with a lot of Tamin's names.
    I thought N. aptera had been in use for a while-how did this happen?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Say, Ch'ien, you naturally have some great photos on your site. The pic of Nepenthes treubiana looks like a close-up. Was that taken with some kind of photo lens, or did you get really close to that plant?

    Cheers,

    Joe
