    I moved all these posts from this thread. There was some discussion of this topic a while back, which can be found here. Otherwise, let's get to the bottom of this! -xvart.


    um, I don't know what tentaculata looks like.

    N. tentaculata is part of the hamata family, says Wikipedia.

    There are absolutely no morphological differences between hamata and tentaculata except the teeth, and I think the hairs on hamatas lid branch 3 times as opposed to being unbranched. All other parts, including pitcher, leaf, and even floral morphology are exactly the same. At most, one is a subspecies/geotype of the other.

    Exactly like N. hamata, without the teeth.

    this is what i also stand at. but which is the original species you wonder. is hamata an extreme variation of tentaculata or tentaculata an extreme form of hamata.

    I'd speculate hamata. It's much harder to move up a mountain than down it.
