    I have attempted to create a list of all the known and currently recognised species of Nepenthes. Of course this list is by no means complete or even exhaustive, but it does give a rough idea of the number of species known. Please let me know if I have missed any species out, or if you have any views on the status of some of these plants. I have included a few as-of-yet undescribed species which are obviously distinct from the others. I have grouped anamensis, kampotiana, etc. under N. mirabilis and regarded N. smilesii and N. thorelli as two distinct taxa.

    1. N. adnata
    2. N. alata
    3. N. albomarginata
    4. N. ampullaria
    5. N. angasanensis
    6. N. aptera
    7. N. argentii
    8. N. aristolochioides
    9. N. bellii
    10. N. benstonei
    11. N. bicalcarata
    12. N. bongso
    13. N. boschiana
    14. N. burbidgeae
    15. N. burkei
    16. N. campanulata
    17. N. carunculata
    18. N. clipeata
    19. N. copelandii
    20. N. danseri
    21. N. deaniana
    22. N. densiflora
    23. N. diatas
    24. N. distillatoria
    25. N. dubia
    26. N. edwardsiana
    27. N. ephippiata
    28. N. eustachya
    29. N. eymae
    30. N. faizaliana
    31. N. fusca
    32. N. glabrata
    33. N. glandulifera
    34. N. gracilis
    35. N. gracillima
    36. N. gymnamphora
    37. N. hamata
    38. N. hirsuta
    39. N. hurrelliana
    40. N. inermis
    41. N. insignis
    42. N. izumiae
    43. N. jacquelineae
    44. N. khasiana
    45. N. klossii
    46. N. lamii
    47. N. lavicola
    48. N. longifolia
    49. N. lowii
    50. N. macfarlanei
    51. N. macrophylla
    52. N. macrovulgaris
    53. N. madagascariensis
    54. N. mapuluensis
    55. N. masoalensis
    56. N. maxima
    57. N. merrilliana
    58. N. mikei
    59. N. mindanaoensis
    60. N. mira
    61. N. mirabilis
    62. N. mollis
    63. N. muluensis
    64. N. murudensis
    65. N. neoguineensis
    66. N. northiana
    67. N. ovata
    68. N. paniculata
    69. N. papuana
    70. N. pectinata
    71. N. pervillei
    72. N. petiolata
    73. N. philippinensis
    74. N. pilosa
    75. N. platychila
    76. N. rafflesiana
    77. N. rajah
    78. N. ramispina
    79. N. reinwardtiana
    80. N. rhombicaulis
    81. N. rowanae
    82. N. sanguinea
    83. N. saranganiensis
    84. N. sibuyanensis
    85. N. singalana
    86. N. smilesii
    87. N. sp. 1 (Borneo Exotics)
    88. N. sp. 2 (Borneo Exotics)
    89. N. sp. 1 “Doorman’s Top”
    90. N. sp. 2 “Doorman’s Top”
    91. N. sp. A (Gunung Mulu National Park)
    92. N. sp. B (Gunung Lumarku)
    93. N. sp. Kemiri
    94. N. sp. nov. Sumatra
    95. N. sp. Palawan 1
    96. N. sp. Palawan 3
    97. N. sp. viking
    98. N. spathulata
    99. N. spectabilis
    100. N. stenophylla
    101. N. sumatrana
    102. N. talangensis
    103. N. tentaculata
    104. N. tenuis
    105. N. thorelii
    106. N. tobaica
    107. N. tomoriana
    108. N. treubiana
    109. N. truncata
    110. N. veitchii
    111. N. ventricosa
    112. N. vieillardii
    113. N. villosa
    114. N. vogelii

    So that gives a total of 114 species. No doubt there are many more yet to be discovered (with a lot of other undescribed species in cultivation), but these are the ones that I am aware of. Perhaps this list can be modified when new species are discovered or taxonomic revisions made. Or maybe someone could help me expand it with names of forms and variants?

    Thanks,
    Nep_grower.

    Bob Z's site lists many var. of species which may or maynot be some species you denoted.

    i do believe N. carunculata and N. bongso are one in the same.

    Well, Wistuba seems to consider them to be two separate species, and from the photos I've seen they look quite different (similar to how N. diatas, N. densiflora, N. sp. Kemiri, N. singalana, etc. are all related). Anyone else have any views on the N. bongso/carunculata classification?

    Comparing various photos of N. bongso in the wild with those of N. carunculata, I think that the N. bongso sold by MT might be N. carunculata var. robusta (as suggested by Geoff Mansell).

    This is a photograph of N. bongso in its natural habitat, taken by Dr. Joachim Nerz:

    Here is a pic of N. carunculata var. robusta from the ExoticaPlants site:

    http://www.exoticaplants.com.au/disp...arvarrobb2.jpg

    I think that some plants may have been mislabelled as either bongso or carunculata?

    N. bongso are one and the saem as carunculata var. robusta according to herbarium specimens (possibly NYBG) and it is known. I do agree that "normal" carunculata is not the same but being how Bob Z does not list it (or does not consider it) I only have herbarium specimens to go on (I will check though).

    Perhaps N. bongso and N. carunculata are synonymous based on herbarium specimens, but the plant commonly known as N. carunculata is yet another species? Or are the differences between the two plants not sufficient to classify them as separate species?
