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

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

Thomas.

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!
