DVG, look closely at other species, too. For example, bicalcarata has a band under the peristome. Contrary to the popular notion, a band does not automatically mean albomarginata. This is probably just a pure jaq.
... And its looking good, Sam. How's the gymnamphora doing?
Going by pictures I've seen of jacquelineae, I am wondering if there isn't an N. inermis influence going on there in Leilani's pitcher.
First off, the translucent patchwork veining pattern on the pitcher's body reminds me of my inermis pitchers, and the patterning seems quite different than that seen on my much smaller jacq's.
The almost complete absence of wings and the shortened gap of front teeth on Leilani's pitcher, plus the rounded 'chin' of the pitcher, instead of being squared off and more sculpted looking makes me again wonder if inermis could be involved here. I compared Leilani's pitcher to Osmosis' jacq in the 'Year in the life' thread. Interestingly, Osmosis's jacq did have a slight white band under it's peristome as well, but not nearly as pronounced as the band in Leilani's pictures.
Walterg, now I'm curious as to how many other Nepenthes species have a white band under their peristomes.
Dave Evans, that makes sense, because come to think of it, all of the species you have listed above all seem to have yellowish colored uppers with a more viscous/sticky pitcher fluid. I wonder if they are tending to attract more flying insects, in the kind of way that yellow sticky strips attact flying insects in greenhouses and nurseries. Also on a side note, do you know if N. tenuis is closely related to this group of bowl shaped Neps stated above by you?
Leilani, I think I was looking for a curveball from you, but you instead served up an offspeed pitch right over the center of the plate...good job of always keeping us guessing.
