It's mitchelliana x leucophylla var. alba

Thanks Alexis! :yes:

Can I ask you where you get this information from? Do you know who made this cross? The only thing I know is that S. x Eva was introduced by CarniFlora.

Thanks in advance!

It's on Matthew Soper's Hampshire Carnivorous Plants website. It's not listed under it's 'cultivar' name, but it's been named unofficially somewhere along the line.

Not exactly.

Both Eva and Vogel where made by Rene van Kessel, the owner of Carniflora.

Vogel is of course named for Art himself, Eva for his wife, it stands for Els Vogel E.... and for the world I can't remember her maiden name a.t.t., sorry.

The crosses where made and named in connection with the retirement of Art Vogel from his job at the Leiden Botanical gardens.

The naming is intended to be official and Hans Luhrs is making the cultivar discriptions, but he is taking his time...

:thanks: That seems to be correct. If you look at these photos of Mr. Vogel's Picasa album (You have to zoom in):

You can read "cult. R. van Kessel"

It stands for Els Vogel-Adamse .

I'm really interested to see the official description of S. x Eva. Let's hope that happen soon.

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.43:137 (2014)
"Much of the latter's features are well visible in this cultivar, producing 6-8 new leaves up to 28 cm long throughout the season and lasting for as long as 7-8 months. They taper gradually from bottom to top to produce a broad cone with a wide almost heart-shaped hood, of which the side lobes are somewhat folded backwards while the inner surface is abundantly covered with little bristly hairs. The pitchers are primarily green, apart from a few red longitudinal veins, with whitish-pink fenestrations in the upper part below the mouth. The hood is very white fenestrated onto a light green background with red veins pronounced on the inner side of the hood (Fig. 3). As the pitchers mature the color in the upper part becomes dark pink, especially the interior and the mouth, while the green inner side of the hood becomes a background for dark red veins. The combination of a dark pink upper part of the pitcher and white-mottled green hood gives this cultivar a unique appearance. The flower petals are deep red."
