    Very fascinating that it has been relegated/elevated to a new species indeed. I personally find that it is very different from the typical truncata plants. Heck...thankfully the two individual F1 generation hybrids that I bought also seem to be very different with each other. One looks like the queen, the other looks like the king. Not as colourful, but shapely.

    But yeah...I would be really interested to reading the actual article. Unfortunately my university doesn't have access to that journal. I hope we can somehow get a copy. I think this opens up a whole can of worms with N. alata and N. maxima group of species.

    I always thought it looked too different to be a truncata.

    Good point on the N. alata and maxima complexes. I think it's weird that there are no subspecies in the Nepenthes genus. I think the red form of alata we have at Meadowview might be a different species, or a subspecies. If only it were this easy to convince people of new Sarracenia species...... It's about time the ancestral form of rubra was named.

    lol! its true.... heck....if u could do DNA analysis, I think we can split a lot of nepenthes/sarr varieties into new species.
