    WOW! Absolutely stunning! Are you going to submit the new type location data to whoever currently has the species named (Jebb and Cheek?)? That is a stunning plant, and should be put into cultivation as soon as possible! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi Chi'en:

    it is an honour to have you in the forums. welcome.

    Now let's get back to business. Where did you find that beauty?. How are you sure it is not a hybrid?. It does not matter anyway, hybrid or not, it is breathtaking, and i want one!. n [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Gus

    P.S. any names for it yet? ie, hairy hamata or hamata velvet?

    Thought people might be interested to see this stunning new variety of N. hamata which I recently photographed in Sulawesi. It comes from a mountain quite far away from the type locality of N. hamata and shows that this species has a good bit of geographical variation throughout its range.

    Compared with the variety from Gunung Lumut (which is probably the source of all the plants currently in cultivation?), the pitchers of this new form are more robust and entirely red with a dense coating of rusty brown hairs. Also, the bristles on the lid are not as numerous nor branched. In all other vegetative respects it matches N. hamata very well.

    Best regards,
    Ch'ien
    Ch'ien Lee,

    Very nice photograph... What camera did you use to take it?

    Hello Ch'ien,

    many thanks for sharing this wonderful photo!

    This brings back a discussion I had earlier this year with Johannes Marabini. He mentioned that the plant Turnbull and Middleton described as N. hamata is a different plant than the N. dentata described by Kurata. He thought the plant described as N. hamata might in fact be a hybrid of N. dentata and N. tentaculata. - Judging from your pitcure I have to agree. A hybrid of the plant on your photo and N. tentaculata in fact could look very similar to the plant described as N.hamata.

    Cheers Joachim

    Wow, very snazy. I wish I could grow that guy.

    Any way so you think the current N.hamata in cultvation is a hybrid and the true hamata is that fuzzy pink one?

    I disagree on the N. tentaculata theory. I don't think N. tentaculata with any species could produce what we see as the N. hamata in cultivation. I wouldn't rule out that perhaps a little N. tentaculata influence way back in the distant past is a possibility.

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