    Check Tony's post following mine and then my second post. But in a nutshell, it ought to have been correctly tagged at the time it was sent.

    Thanks Rattler, I thought I remembered you lost one but I could not recall which it was.

    But like the lowii, gots to wait to see if there any hair under that chiny-chin-chin (yeah I know, the lid)

    I thought I had lost these but here are two pics of plant in question prior to purchasing:

    Hopefully these two pics will give more aid to the IDing of this plant.

    Looking at your plant I, like Tony, am kind of inclined to think it is lowii. IIRC Wistuba has a "combo" pack he does of lowii and macro... Maybe there was a tag mix up in a shipment or after the shipment??...

    So, some person out there is going, "Dang. My lowii got some funny teeth?"

    Hiya Rattler-

    What adds more salt to my festering, fly circling, smelly wound is that he sent me pics before I purchased it. So even if it was mislabled, I wish I knew what to look for in a juvie N. mac. Obviously, I didn't

    i still think its an xTM....my lowii, when i got it at first was about 3" in diameter, and even then had a couple of tiny little hairs under the lid.

    There is a good chance it is some sort of N. trusmadiensis. It is a little unusual for N. lowii to not show some hairs under the lid at a decent size like that. My main reason for suggesting not ruling it out yet is because the pitcher didnt' look properly developed particularly in the lid. I think with the next pitcher or two it will should be much clearer and in short order can probably determine if it is or isn't N. lowii. What I find odd is it doesn't look like any N. trusmadiensis I have ever seen come from the supplier in question.. It doesn't look like the plant Rattler has to me, although the size difference might? be causing that. (thanks for the photo Rattler!)

    Pyro do you know if he has ever released some seed grown plants? Like if he had extra in the lab and just potted them up instead of keeping dozens of different clones? I know Malesiana did that in the past when they would initially release a new item.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I have to agree....this plant looks definitely like a primary lowii hybrid...maybe a lowii x macrophylla ? I know that the BE x TM is a macrophylla x lowii. Perhaps this one being the reverse is showing more lowii style phenotypes.
