Two new Nepenthes species!

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

2 weeks ago, David Marwinski, Marius Micheler and myself discovered 2 new pitcher plant species on the Philippines.

Spec "C" shares similarities with N.copelandii, but is much smaller and has several distinct morphological features.

Spec "P" has a similar pitcher morphology than N.petiolata but has strongly decurrent leaf attachments and is bigger than N.petiolata.

Please click here to see pictures:

The descriptions will be published in Stewarts new book that is about to be released by the end of this year.

Cheers

Thomas

Good grief- species "p" is incredible...

Although no seeds are available, will these two end up in cultivation?

Has any material gone to any of the nurseries?

Yep. I just don't have enough seeds to spare them via the forum. Propagation first :-)

Cheers

Hello,

the names of the two new species are now visible on Stewarts website:

Spec C is N.ceciliae (named in memoriam of Cecile Bertand Amoroso, the wife of our Co-Author Voctor Amorose from Central Mindanao University)

Spec P is N.pulchra for obvious reasons :-)

Please also refer to this link:

Cheers

Thomas.

PS Seed of both species germinated in vitro!
