    I cannot find any grex record for the name, N. (Marbled Dragon), or any other record of the name. Can you tell us anything more about this plant?

    IIRC, there's several "_____ Dragon" crosses, and they're all N. truncata hybrids, maybe. I think some of them are unknown though but "speculated" to be like such and such, in this case, apparently N. maxima x truncata.

    Okay, I had only checked the Nepenthes grex registry. The CP Photo Finder describes it as an unofficial name as a possible hybrid between N. maxima (dark) x truncata = N. "Marbled Dragon". The CP Photo Finder lists it in double quotes because, as a name, it has no official status, no more than any nickname would.

    Then perhaps the grex registry is not complete, as i see in EPs photo of the plant itself, that it is indeed in '___'
    not sure if it was a typo on their part or what?
