    1. Nepenthes harryana (villosa x edwardsiana) - seed
    2. Nepenthes kinabaluensis (villosa x rajah) - seed
    3. Nepenthes sp. "Sulawesi"
    4. Nepenthes sp. "Palawan"
    5. Nepenthes pitopangii - Not Certain this is in culvation
    6. Nepenthes x Alisaputrana (burbidgeae x rajah) - seed
    7. Nepenthes klossi
    8. Nepenthes attenboroughii - seed
    9. Nepenthes hurreliana - seed not tc
    10. Nepenthes edwardsiana - seed
    11. Nepenthes clipeata - seed
    12. Nepenthes aristolochiodies - seed
    13. Nepenthes x trusmadiensis - seed
    14. Nepenthes villosa - seed
    15. Nepenthes lamii - seed
    16. Nepenthes rigidifolia - (tc or seed)
    17. Nepenthes hamata 'hairy yellow or red' - seed
    18. Nepenthes rajah - seed
    19. Nepenthes flava - seed
    20. Nepenthes naga - tc or seed
    21. Nepenthes eymae - 'True Species' - seed
    22. Nepenthes macrophylla - seed
    23. Nepenthes jamban - seed

    good news about pitopangii: stew said the original site actually only contained one male clone (a giant one at that) but said a POPULATION was discovered at a different but nearby location.

    cant wait till that one gets into cultivation....wont be anytime soon though.

    I'm surprised that you would rank hybrids above pure strains..

    Cephalotus,

    We are talking about super-rare naturally occurring hybrids.

    Most of the time these hybrids will come about from species' seed. So let say I have a batch of Nepenthes edwardsiana seeds growing, which is rare in-itself, the chances that a cross with villosa has occurred in these seeds or a single seed is even more rare. The Bornean highlan crosses Harryana, Kinabluensis, Alisaputrana, and Trusmadiensis have always been in high demand for the exceptional beauty and rarity.

    Maybe hybrids should be excluded all together from the list.

    Yeah, I think that hybrids should be excluded from this list altogether. Under no circumstance could I ever see a hybrid actually fetching more in the long term...

    hybrids can often be harder to find/more expensive than pure species, especially if the hybrid was never put into TC......
