    Excellent stuff Tony. This should be made more permanent as I'm sure this won't be the last time someone asks this question. Maybe adding it to your website or writing a book!

    I have bought two macfarleneis in my time (still have 'em both). My first looks a lot like Tony's pic of the one with lots of ramspina coloring (but mine even darker), so I think it a hybrid of the two.

    My second last the coloring of the pure species, but I think it's more elongated like the pic of one where he's not sure of the other parent.

    Hello guys!

    Tony, thank you very, very much for this work of research that you have done. It has been really helpful. Thank you!

    Well, a several days after the pics i took of my plant, i have seen clearly that my supossed "mac" must be a mac x sanguinea.

    Indeed it is a a "colorful sanguinea" like Clarke sais. The way that it has its lid diagonally, like sanguinea and the shape of the pitcher, purely sanguinea. Also the detail that the tendrils are very short, not even close to those of the true macfarlanei that Tony has posted. Besides, there is not white hairs under the lid and the peristome is more flat... like sanguinea ones, not like the mac's.

    Here are a couple of pics to compare my supossed "mac" with one of my sanguinea:



    For me they are exactly the same, only the change in coloration. Though, now i wonder from where this hybrid gets the red peristome. Hmmm...

    Once again, thank you Tony!

    There is a lot of variety among sanguinea and many of them have red peristomes.
