    Looks like; quacks like; looks to be a villosa to me . . .

    I disagree David. Having grown both plants from seed and seedling alike, this specimen is screaming x kinabaluensis to me. The lamina are exhibiting rajah morphology and generally at this size, villosa are already showing distinct ridges on the peristome which this plant isn't. In my experience (and conditions), color can also often a determining factor. If this plant came from where I think it came from, which I believe it did from this statement:

    then, all the seedlings in a recent batch of seed have already proven to be x kinabaluensis.
