Mingan"), but there was a listing on Leonardo Co's website listed the two as separate species. Now, the list has been edited (the taxon from Mingan being removed)... I can't confirm it, but if they are the same species, N. barcelonae is already in cultivation.
    Thanks for the link and information.

    According to François Mey, N. barcelonae is in fact the Insignes Nepenthes from Mt. Mingan.

    N. sp. Mingan

    These are quite a ways away from the "dimorphic" uppers mentioned in the paper, but here is a picture of a couple of my seedlings.

    Awesome Dex, it's interesting how the edges of the leaves are rather hairy, vent and sib leaves and smooth and hairless on the edges.

    I think that's actually an N. attenboroughii seedling.

    There are already images available and also some disagreement about its initial description, in terms of the color of the upper versus lower pitchers -- whether they even exist in terms of differences; whether those green leaves will eventually change to red . . .

    "The point on the dichromy of upper pichers is debatable. The primary pitchers being red and the secondary being green is not on agreement with their own observations. The green pitchers actually turn red. While Cheek, Tandang & Pelser's paper insist that N. barcelonae doesn't produce lower pichers, as it seems to be the case with other members of the Insignes section, Robinson and his colleagues find out that lower pitchers are produced but in very young plants and they do exhibit wings albeit dimished ones. Actually, what Cheek et al. see as primary upper pitchers would be better off seen as rosette pitchers lacking wings with unusual pitcher insertion (this is not new in the genus) . . ."
