    Nepenthes barcelonae
    (Nepenthaceae), a new species from Luzon, Philippines

    Martin Cheek, Danilo N. Tandang, Pieter B. Pelser

    Abstract


    Nepenthes barcelonae is described as a new species in sect. Insignes, where it is unique in the inset mouth and the dichromic upper pitchers (first-produced pitchers red, later-produced pitchers green) which are also dimorphic. This is a newly recorded phenomenon in the genus: the first produced (primary upper pitchers) are red, larger, stouter, and have an uncoiled long tendril, while those later produced (secondary upper pitchers) are green, smaller, more slender, and have a coiled tendril. The only population of this species that is currently known grows in an area less than 10km² on a single mountain. Individual plants are at risk from collecting for the horticultural trade. Following the IUCN criteria, N. barcelonae is assessed as Critically Endangered.

    Interesting, especially the note about the upper pitchers. Will see if my uni has full access to the article on Monday.

    Write to one of the authors and perhaps they will send you a copy of the article. Or subscribe to Phytotaxa (at $2600 a year) and download a copy.

    Here's a link to a fairly comprehensive overview (plus pictures!) of N. barcelonae from François Mey's blog. Before the pictures came out, I was wondering whether or not N. barcelonae was conspecific with a Nepenthes species from Mt. Mingan (that's been creatively called "N. sp. 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.
