    I think that http://www.hbs.ne.jp/home/s-yamada/Dsc04692.jpg is actually the orange fusca from Sarawak - I don't think the pitcher belongs to the plant in the pot but a neighbour.

    Ah.. did a little research and see what your saying Michael. Yes indeed the natural hybrid was listed as N. truncata x petiolata at the time N. petiolata was a synonym for N. mindanaoensis. Alot of confusion around the Nepenthes from that area and still is today! Fortunately the real N. petiolata is in cultivation finally!

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

    Yes, and I still see truncata x "petiolata" on people's lists occasionally, lol.

    Cheers,

    What makes even more confusion is that many people who sell truncata x petiolata actually has bellii x truncata instead. A very different plant, but just the name game thing.

    I retract my earlier comment, I just went to the source page and looked at other pics of the same pitcher from a different angle - definitely not fusca. I now just put it in that jumble of species from The Philippines that could be alata but maybe isn't. Definitive, eh?!
