    Hi,

    looking through the MT catalog I found an interesting note concerning the status of N. pectinata vs. N. gymnamphora:
    http://www.malesiana.com/plant/10Exp...ductCode=NE-61

    Does anyone here has an update on the taxonomic status of N. pectinata? Of course I am interested, because I have a N. gymnamphora looking quite similar to the N. pectinata on the MT page...

    I have always figured them as two different species. Particularly because the leaves seem very different to me between the various N. gymnamphora and N. pectinata I have seen.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hallo Joachim,

    In the year 1993 I had the pleasure to meet the following species on a small mountain south of Jakarta (Java, Indonesia) :





    Tentatively I identified it as a N. gymnamphora, but I didn't really verify it. I thought your thread here is a good place to add it to the discussion.

    Regards or better cheers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi Joachim
    Great looking plant there,love the shape.
    Volker
    You are indeed lucky to see these plants in the wild but the plant looks a lot like Hirsuta to me.

    Bye for now julian

    Looks like N. gymnamphora to me in Volkers photos. N. hirsuta wouldn't have such a wide peristome Julian and would have a darker appearance due to the hairy nature of the plant.

    Yes, the plant was not hairy at all. Furthermore N. hirsuta is AFAIK endemic to Borneo.

    Very nice looking plants there Volker,it must have been quite a thrill to see them in the wild.
