Here are some photos of Nepenthes lingulata, a newly described highland species from North Sumatra, Indonesia. Discovered by Ch'ien Lee, this species is characterised by the long appendage beneath the lid, which hangs down towards the mouth of the pitcher.
The name 'lingulata' is derived from 'lingula', the latin name for tongue.
This species is in cultivation.
More and better photos will be available soon on Ch'ien's website www.wildborneo.com.my
