    Sure looks like a possible new species, or Dwarf Highland merrilliana! (just kidding)
    Another new insigne from the Philippines!

    Interesting plant. Looks closest to sibuyanensis in my eyes, especially with the neck, but the pitchers are not as plump. Leaf shape is similar too. When you say northern part of the country I guess you don't necessarily mean the northern part of Luzon?

    What I trying to get at is that Sibuyan Island isn't too far south of Luzon, so maybe these species was related way back in time.

    Do you know if they saw many large plants? The photos mostly show young plants, I assume of course they are the same species.

    Regards,

    Christer

    This is good stuff!
    What are the pale green uppers from? Are those alata? I have never seen the peristome fold back like that on alata...

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I love the pitcher/leaf ratio it's got going on there.

    Is it totally impossible that burkei got friendly with sibuyanensis? Then again I don't see why they'd be in Luzon where neither of them are/have been found, as opposed to Mindoro and Sibuyan. We need Dr. Clarke to write a book on the Philippines and Sulawesi!

    That's interesting. Are you quite sure it came from Luzon at 1700 - 1800m? Could there be any mistake there? Certainly looks related to N. sibuyanensis to me. Can you give us any more information? Has anyone taken any herbarium samples?

    It's surprising for anything new to come out of Luzon as it's pretty well expored botanically. Still possible though.
