Fantastic stuff as always. I'm not good at identification, but if I had to put my two cents worth, literally, that thorelii x tm maybe a ventricosa x tm? It looks quite dark compared to other thorelii x tms. Whatever it is, it is a nice plant.
The peristome looks similar to vent. x TM, I was going to mention it as well but wasn't sure... ...the darkness of the pitcher is superfluous I've already seen them that dark if not darker but the shape of the the pitcher plus the peristome both make me say it'd be ventricosa x x trusmadiensis.
Nepsaroundthehouse & Nep369: You're probably right. The plant may very well be a vent x TM. Thanks for pointing it out.
phissionkorps: This particular boschiana clone is from Malesiana/Exotica (seed grown). These clones seem more colorful than say the older Wistuba clones. I sometimes wonder what the N. spathulata x boschiana and maxima x boschiana hybrids would've looked like if one of the more colorful boschianas like this one were used.
I understand that the spectabilis clone shown here was referred to as Ugly Duckling because it had little color and was quite boring when it was young. But it turned out pretty spectacular when fully grown.

Yes I have the old Wistuba clone. The one he offered from cuttings before he actually had it in TC. I can't really comment on its color since it's building its first pitcher for me now. My d**n dog ripped it out of the pot, which took it a couple months to recover in my temps. Yours is very nice though .
