    Alright, so here's the deal: Once a week I'm going to start a topic on a Nep about which very little is known. If you know anything about it, please tell us! (And post pics if you grow it!)

    N. junghuhnii
    Macfarlane

    Possibly a synonym for singalana. However, they are both apparently listed as species by Jebb & Cheek. Any other info?

    Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer

    TyFone, you're right, Macfarlane was the one who discovered it.

    BobZ, you found kind of what I found except that now it may be a synonym for bongso OR singalana? Well, two sources say it is synonymous with singalana and one says it might be bongso (is that how I should interperet the '?'). Thanks BobZ, I think it's probably singalana, though that doesn't explain why junghuhnii, singalana, and bongso are all listed as species by Jebb & Cheek. Did Macfarlane, Korthals and Beccari all report the same plant as their discovery? There is obviously difference between singalana and bongso, so what exactly does junghuhnii look like?

    Anyway, it appears that this plant is certainly nothing strange or bizarre that we have never seen before. Next week, I'll post another one of these! I've got a few more I've found, just need to get back to the library to do some research!

    Not sure where your reading that Jebb & Cheek have it listed as a species. In volume 15 Flora Malesiana it is listed as a synonym for N. singalana by Jebb & Cheek.

    There was alot of confusion with Nepenthes when many were described multiple times, not realizing how a single species can change pitcher form from lower to upper.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
