Hello all,

 

Behold Nepenthes barcelonae, a new species from Luzon, Philippines. it is named after Julie Barcelona, Philippine botanist, expert of ferns and Rafflesia. Here is my review of the paper:

Your review is a very deep and informative reading Francois! Do you know if samples of the plant have been taken at the time of the discovery?

As Corky said before: Thanks for sharing

Hi JMHoff,

Glad you liked the review. What do you mean by 'samples'? The species has been collected at least twice in order to make herbarium materials is that is what you are refering to? This is mandatory in order to publish a description. The samples are then deposited in an herbarium.

All the best,

François.

Hi Francois! That's what I was wondering. I wasn't sure how the normal procedure with a new species worked and seeing the N. Barcelonae is already in the danger list it seemed more time pressuring to save some plant material.

 

Thanks for the answer.

This species is indeed in cultivation.  Some of the people who found it brought back some seeds and sent them to growers. I've got a couple of plants from my portion of seeds, and I'm going to part with one, pm for details.
