Q: The big Nepenthes checklist!

A: The previous FAQ entries were geographically based, and so there were lots of species that were mentioned on more than one page. If you just want to see lists of the species, without repeated entries, here is a list for the genus. If there are entries that you think I missed, it might be because I do not believe the names have merit. I am not indicating subgeneric divisions since there is very little evidence for a really good system of such names.

1Some botanists merge N. ramispina Ridl. and N. alba Ridl. into N. gracillima Ridl.
2Sometimes lumped with N. mikei Salmon & Maulder.
3Includes N. pectinata Danser and N. xiphioides Salmon & Maulder.
4Including N. fallax G.Beck, which may be a separate species.
5Often grouped with N. alata Blanco.
6Formerly referred to as N. anamensis Macf.

The preceding list is no doubt incomplete as new species are described, so watch for new species!
