    Looks like a lower pitcher of Eymae.

    N.Maxima is also a possibility.

    I do second Tony's statement - this plant is in no way N. veitchii x gracilis. The picture plantarara had on their website when selling this plant did match your plant exactly ElTunnel, so propably Uwe Westphal can't help correcting the label.

    The photo, as well as not knowing the height of the pitcher nor being able to clearly see its lid makes it a bit difficult if not impossible to tell. One unique feature I see in the photo is the lack of any spotting on the inside upper part of the pitcher. My eymae's, faizalanas, and maximas all have spotting on the rear inner part of the pitchers. I do have one form of N. maxima that does not put spotting on the inner part of the pitcher until the pitchers are quite large. I also have a couple of forms of N. fusca that do not show inner spotting although the outside is dark and spotted and this can be seen on the inside if light is shining through the pitcher. My guess would be a form of N. maxima.

    It looks pretty similar to my Holland Hybrid. I know it's not thorelli x whittea, as I have one, and it has lighter shades of red than that.

    On second thought, that looks a lot like my Holland Hybrid. The leaves and pitchers look really similar.

    what an odd plant. The wierd thing is, my Gubler Brand Nepenthes pitchers look EXACTLY like that. My plant is about 10 inches tall with pitchers about 4 inches tall. Same patterns, etc, except that it has spots showing inside the mouth also. I grow mine in a very humid tank with my other neps, except for spathulata, maxima, and alata
