    It should be N. rubromaculata (not rubra-maculata) which is a synonym for N. glabrata. According to Jebb and Cheek, N. glabrata was published in August 1983 while N. rubromaculata was published in November 1983. So the correct usage would be N. glabrata.

    Also note there is a hybrid N. x rubromaculata made back in 1877s with gracilis, khasiana and veitchii
