Does this look familiar to anybody?

Many, many years ago, I was sent this plant in a trade from somebody on here. It was not a particular cultivar, but rather a fairly complex hybrid. This is a long shot, but does this look exactly like a plant that somebody on here has and has sent out on trades? It is a female.

Ooh, is this the one I have too? If not, sure looks like it. She's been doing great; beautiful little chunk. Hope you are able to track down her breeder.

Could be nepenthes 'St Gaya'
It's definitely something a little bit different, (pattern on pitchers less distinct, leaves more pink and less copper) but I didn't realize how similar the lower pitchers looked until you said that! I have both so I will grab a side-by-side pic tomorrow. Darn close.

Yes! I had somebody on another site who kept insisting it was Gaya and when I went to make a case for it not being one, I took a similar closer look and thought "wow!" They look like they could be siblings.

Hope this is useful - your gal is behind and there is a (lidless) St Gaya pitcher in front. They are grown in different light levels but otherwise similar conditions.
