Heliamphora neblinae

Heliamphora neblinae (after Cerro Neblina) is a species of Marsh Pitcher Plant endemic to Cerro Neblina in Venezuela. It is one of the most variable species in the genus and was once considered to be a variety of H. tatei. It is unclear whether or not there is a consensus regarding its status as a species, with at least a few researchers supporting the taxonomic revision that would elevate both H. tatei var. neblinae and H. tatei f. macdonaldae to full species status.Rice, Barry A.
