||Occurs in mossy forest where it grows as an eipiphyte (very rarely terrestrial). Elevation 1500-2400 m.|
|| ||The beautiful lower pitchers of this species can reach lengths of up to 30 cm. They are richly spotted in brownish purple and have a very wide striped peristome which is elongated into a neck at the rear of the mouth. Most of the plant is covered in a dense coat of long brownish hairs.
|| ||This species was thought for a long time to be a natural hybrid between N. veitchii and N. fusca until a more recent detailed study of its features revealed it to be a distinct species. The upper pitchers can sometimes be confused with those of N. fusca, but the lower pitchers are very distinctive.
