Paper redefines nepenthes taxonomy

Hello everyone,

An incredible paper has been published by a collective of botanists that completely redefines nepenthes taxonomy. Not only are a few new species groups named in this paper, but many of the previously defined species have been reclassified as hybrids.

An interesting paper, and certainly worth fetching the label maker!

I disagree with the statement in the second paragraph, I find it to be shallow and pedantic.
Wait what!? Rajah is a hybrid!?
now im hungry, but the graph clearly shows iv had plenty of chicken for one lifetime :lol:
Holy crap! This is groundbreaking. Thank you for sharing!
@Drew, yeah that is weird.. I dont get how villosa is a hybrid with edwardsiana and venus flytrap though :scratch:
Lolz. Nice.
