    Hopefully this pictures are better, let me know.

    I'll go ahead and look at the neighboring plants to see if it's spread.

    at first i thought it was nectar glands because I've seen them on my ventratas. But honestly this perfectly circular dents looks like bite marks...

    thanks!!

    They are nectar glands. Nepenthes glandulifera is particularly pronounced in nectar gland expression. I suspect they developed on the leaves as a sort of side effect from the same specialized glands in and around the traps. If you look closely you can see the same glands on the traps and tendril of this glandulifera specimen: https://www.flickr.com/photos/996119...posted-public/.

    Looks like a glandulifera hybrid to me. . . what is the heritage of the plant?

    Oh! :P Stupid me, it's in the flipping title.

    Super glandy for a N. sibuyanensis, I didn't know they came like that.

    Pretty prominent extrafloral nectaries, but nothing to be concerned about. Here's some shots of a young N. glandulifera:
