Nepenthes sanguinea X N. ramispina is a hybrid between two highlanders. I don't actually know if this plant is a hybrid, but I believe so from information in different discussion groups. This plant was sent to me as N. sanguinea E form. But in comparing this plant to my N. sanguinea E form from Exotica Plants it does look different. For one, it's not as dark. The pitcher shape also differs from my other N. sanguineas too. From a discussion in a form group, N. sanguinea was supposed to have a single spur while N. ramispina had a multiple pronged spur. My plant above has a 3-point spur on it. It was also discussed that these two species grow near other and can regularly hybridize in nature. So as I really took a look at this plant I've seen some of the subtle differences from my other N. sanguineas and that is why I'm determining this to be a hybrid with N. ramispina. My other N. ramispinas I purchased do look like pure species and not hybrids with N. sanguinea.
