    im also inclined to believe your hirsuta is really a hispida, its an easy mix up obviously if the big heads can mix it up

    can i get a shot of the leaf attachment and leaves itself? i can get a better idea as the leaves are the best way to describe it since the indumentum can be very similar between the two but is generally quite a bit longer in hispida rather than hirsuta...hirsuta being 1-2mm in length, hispida is 1.5-4mm i believe if the description serves right in my memory.

    hirsutas leaves are also sub-petiolate....
    i remember there being a debate about this somewhere....

    EDIT
    actually i can see the leaves quite a bit better on my bigger screen, that is almost definitely a hispida and not hirsuta....the leaf is not sub-petiolate, and the indumentum appears to fit the description alot more to hispida than hirsuta

    Here is a pic of how the leaves are attached.

    Hairs are brown and short; not too bristly - hirsuta
    Leaf bases not completely clasping the stem - hirsuta

    The plant seems to be N. hirsuta...

    aye ive gone and mixed up some of the IDs with one another lol

    such closely related species in this case, imo should be lumped together and put as extreme variations of one another.....like hamata and tentaculata or the whole maxima group...
    that newest shot screams hirsuta to me...

    If the leaves are sub-petiolate to petiolate, the plant is near certainly hirsuta... however, it doesn't really show pitchers like textbook hirsuta. I should give up while I'm still ahead.

    If we described species only by pitchers, I found ten new species in my collection. The million dollar question is "where do we draw the line?" for describing new ones.
