    Hi,

    maybe not all of you have seen the announcement of Jean De Witte at the ICPS listserv. He has added a small travel report of his last visit on G. Murud to his homepage:

    http://www.jeandewitte.de/murud2002/murud_2002.html

    Most impressive to me is the picture of N. spec. B:



    and of course this "red bulbous Nepenthes":



    (The pictures iaren't stolen, they are links to Jean's site.)

    Cheers Joachim

    That species B is really wild. Looks like what Malesiana is calling species #2.

    The red one looks alot like my lower pitchers of what I have labelled N. murudensis.

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

    B/#2 is an amazing looking plant, to me it looks like a cross of N. fusca x veitchii. However N. fusca isn't mentioned in the article on G. murud and if doesn't grow there then that option is out...

    I believe 'sp. b' is considered a stabilized population of the natural hybrid of fusca x veitchii. As I recall, there was some scientific debate about the lack of both parent species near the sites where 'b' can be found. It was even suggested that 'b' took over the ecological niche, crowding out fusca and veitchii, making them extinct in these areas.
    Also, it is believed that species 'b' might actually be Danser's N. mollis, but it cannot be proven. Is this why 'species b' has never been described and properly named? It's been known for a long time now. Anyone out there in Nepenthesland have the latest scoop on this?

    Second all that Trent said, lol. That is the best pic I have ever seen of this plant, though.

    Regards,

    Has anyone ever made a fusca x veitchii cross for horticulture? I wonder how the plants would compare to sp. B?

    The man made cross N. fusca x veitchii has been made. I have not seen pictures and suspect the plants are still fairly young yet.
