    The first picture is the upper pitcher of N. copelandii

    Yours is typical for a N. copelandii with lower pitchers.

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

    I concur with Tony. The ebay pic is clearly of upper pitchers; yours is showing lower pitchers. They tend to look quite different. I am not familiar with that species, not enough to ID it from a photo of the pitchers, but it is reasonable to assume you got what you ordered.

    Try doing a google image search for N. copelandii, and see if what turns up resembles your plant.

    Many samples of lower/upper pitchers may look like they are from different plants, but both of those are definitely coplandii.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Yup, what they all said. Sellers often tempt potential buyers with awesome photos of mature pitchers, then you end up getting the true species, yes, but without the marvelous pitcher featured at the auction.
