Hi Francois, Thanks for posting. We can't really see your photo clearly, perhaps you can enlarge the image. Our mirabilis do have a collection of glands in that area, but not a "trigger" or glandular boss in the extreme that the Viking (or globosa) does.
Gus, What are you trying to say? We have already stated that we think N. globosa is related to mirabilis, much like N. rowanae. If you were to remove the pitchers from the Viking, just looking at the plant alone, it could be mistaken for a mirabilis.

yes, it's true what you stated earlier, but then again, we have mirabilis echinostoma with unique features on the pitcher and yet it's still labelled mirabilis!. I think there are a lot of inconsistencies when attempts are made to label plants, because each taxonomist has his/her own way of thinking. I do believe standardization of taxonomic keys shall overcome these inconsistencies.
It would be a good idea Gus, but some taxonomists would disagree about that standardization. I'm practising entomology for more than 15 years now and have seen that taxonomists could almost killed each other if locked in the same room! ;D
Actually, it depends on who you choose to believe.
(By the way, is there anything else than the peristome which distinguish mirabilis echinostoma from the regular mirabilis?)
Sunbelle, i will try to post a better picture of the mirabilis glandular crest as soon as possible.
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
