    Hi,

    Looking at the following pics (1st link below) would anyone care to identify the plant in pictures 51&53 on page 3? I certainly think this is N.macrophylla, but looking at the slightly irregular protrusions on the peristome (spiking) it reminded me of the debate regarding this characteristic seen on one of Wistubas macrophylla clones (2nd link below). On Wistubas clone the protrusions are more exaggerated and it is regarded by some as being atypical ie. a hybrid (N.trusmadiensis). My N.x trusmadiensis or for that matter any other trusmadiensis I have seen look nothing like this plant or Wistubas clone which display none of the lowii characteristics typically seen on the underside of the lid. Perhaps these photos show that N.macrophylla can have an irregular peristome. Any thoughts?

    I suspect it is N. xTrusmadiensis possibly crossed back with macrophylla. The lid hairs are not always visible on lowii hybrids and it does have the elongated mouth associated with lowii hybrids as they enter the intermediate stage.

    if that is true....could that be the same for Wistuba's clone?

    Hi,

    I should have said the wild pics are not mine but the Wistuba plant is.
