    nice photos! i wish ive gone to the jungle walks in Genting Highlands!
    You should have bought one of those neps!!! ive brought home CPs from Malaysia before (not field collected, bought). The only one i saw in Genting Highlands which was cultivated
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Hi Colin,

    Having been up there myself, I would confirm that the red pitchers are N. macfarlanei (unually red, should be brown). The white dainty one is also a macfarlanei lower picther.

    My guess for the unidentifed pitcher 3 is a hybrid between macfarlanei x ramispina.

    There is no reinwardtiana in Peninsular Malaysia. With a yellowish peristome, it could be a hybrid between mafarlanei and sanguiena.

    Now the unidentified cultivated pitcher 2 looks interesting. Do you have a close up shot of the pitcher? Or can you enlarge the pitcher in the scan? Because the shape and coloration suggest it maybe a N. gracillima. Afterall, N. gracillima is known to grow in Gunung Tahan which is not very far by 4 wheels from Cameron Highlands.

    Thanks for the great photos.

    swords, yes, I did get one, but I'm worried because it may have been collected from the wild. I didn't get that beautiful one though.

    Thanks Neil, I think I was exceptionally fortunate. You should have, wezx!

    Choong, that's what I thought at first, but two pitchers of the same plant had "eye-spots", which seemed rather too coincidental for a hybrid. And the white one is a macfarlanei upper or lower? I'll see if I can enlarge the picture or get another one (which I think I have...somewhere).

    Geocities and community.webshots.com don't allow remote links, i.e. you cannot post a pic here using geocities as a server...links are fine...

    My account got suspended because of that! And I lost quite a few files...

    Wow! Colinliew where did you find those? I went to Genting highlands and all I saw was a pitcher plant with one mirabillis pitcher, looked about five inches, howeve I didn't get a pic. Is Cameron highlands supposed to have more pitcher plants than Genting?

    Well, I got nailed by the USDA(for those of you who did not hear about this before) last year for getting plants from Malaysia that were "nursery grown" (it was a $2500 fine and the guy lableled them as "children's toys"-even though I had the proper documention on my side), and I was worried that the guy went out and actually dug them up, but I am guessing he bought them cheap and then mailed them to me at a profit to him.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Jason, I'm sure Genting has quite a few pitcher plants as well, the trick is knowing where to look and getting a good guide.

    Colin,

    Having observed my N. sanguinea collection closely, I can now conclude that the unidentified cultivated pitcher 2 is NOT N. gracilima but just N. sanguinea upper pithchers. N. gracillima do not have big mouth.

    As for Jason Wong, there are a few sanguinea/ramispina/gracilis sites I know around Genting. Genting is a very big place. To look for them you must go off the main road. For N. macfarlinei, you be prepared to go up the mossy forest near the Casino hotel complex.
