    looks like either sunburn or insect damage. Have the conditions changed recently?

    I get that rust on the oldest leaves of my Neps too.

    My pet theory is that it's a tad too much light and the lack of proper nutrients causing the older leaves to finally "give up the ghost" and die.

    I never see it on new emerging leaves. I think that it's definitely an age thing...

    Looks like insect damage to me since it's on the underside and along the midvein primarily. Could be mites, could be thrips. Probably mites this time of year with the drier conditions most of us experience during the Winter. Is it sunken where the brown splotches are? Then it is something sucking the leaf. Rust usually causes blistering and expansion of the leaf tissue where it grows within the leaf
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I fyou look smack dab in the middle of the second picture on the leaf looks like there is something there like a mite perhaps, or the fruiting body of something else. I vote for mites as well. Drier conditions merit mites populations to soar. I always had mites in the winter in the greenhouse.
