    That was my guess .Only mirabilis and gracilis were found around the lowlying area.N.northiana was a distance away up the limestone hill.

    Fantastic photos!
    There are a number of possibilities for the hybrid. Agree with RFG. about the northiana showing more peristome. Perhaps the hybrid is (gracilis x (gracilis x northiana)).

    today i get the answer from a forest conservationist(also a botanist).Indeed it's northiana x gracilis.I also have another variation as in the following photos.

    The image above is different to the previous one, which I am almost 100% sure is gracilis. The peristome is completely different.

    slight variation in color and physical appearance.The previous is brownish red,the later yellowish spotted red.Natural hybridisation,maybe.I will made another trip to find out.Both are in the same locality.:laugh:

    That one definitely looks like gracilis x northiana.
    Troy, one that previous plant, do you think the leaves look too broad for a pure gracilis?-- Which is why I suggested the (gracilis x (gracilis x northiana)) I would certainly defer to your opinion on it, knowing you have probably seen thousands of individual gracilis plants in habitat.

    I have another photo taken in the same location(Bau Limestone Hills)the place where our big brother(N.northiana)live .Does it look like the previous
    two?I can see slight differences-small,slender but the peristome show same feature.

    Michael, I don't think that's always the case. Whilst northiana hybrids often have a more flared peristome, it does depend on the species with which it hybridises. For example, N. x cincta, a natural hybrid between northiana and albomarginata, is almost indistinguishable from albomarginata, such is albomarginata's peristome's genetic dominance. It is a great "quasher" of peristomes of species with which it is hybridised. I've seen other albomarginata hybrids which have completely quashed a showy peristome of the other parent. I don't know about gracilis, but it could be a similar thing.
