    I will add muluensis

    There is some confusion on vieillardii. It is often thought of as a highland plant when in fact it isn't. There used to be a plant called veillardii from Doormans Top, New Guinea which is very much highland. This plant is now called N. lamii. (if memory serves correct)
    Vieillardii comes from New Caledonia at 300-900m above sea level.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Pat,

    N. jacquelineae and N. dubia already have entered cultivation. According to Borneo Exotics announcement list of plants they will come next year. But I doubt N. jacquelineae will enter into cultivation very much due to its large size...

    The ACPS sells both books of Clarke for reasonable prices to their members.

    That's why N.Veillardii sounded wierd to me, cause it got a new name! heh, Lamii is familar though. Also I think N.Khasiana should belong here known for it's coldness tolerance.

    N. viellardii was first described by Hook in 1873 and the name veillardii for the same plant was introduced by Burbidge in 1904 - I didn't know you are that old N. gracilis...

    I am not THAT old! I just study the history of recorded names that have been replaced by the names we now use today. I do alot of check up on Nepenthes. I just have read so much that old and new names are in my head and are abit confusing. Sorta like S. Purpurea subsp Purpurea was once called S.Gibbosa. See what I mean?

    Ultrahighland species, which I characterize as growing at a minimum altitude of 2000 m
    or more, are the following: NN. murudensis, singalana, macrophylla, aristolochioides,
    villosa, diatas, and inermis. I would also include the "Doorman's Top" variety of
    N. lamii in this group, as it grows higher than any other Nepenthes.

    Other species which grow at a minimum elevation of 1000 m or above, I would merely
    consider as highland species, or in the case of those growing from 1000 to 1300 m,
    intermediates.
