Abstract

In June 2007, I was fortunate to visit the island of Palawan in the south of the Philippine archipelago with two friends and Nepenthes experts, Alastair Robinson and Volker Heinrich. We had previously received a report of populations of unknown highland Nepenthes from the summit of a little explored peak called Mount Victoria, and after receiving permission from the provincial mayor, we found local hunters who would guide us up the remote mountain to at least as far as they could take us.

Keywords: Nepenthes attenboroughii, Mount Victoria, Palawan, Philippines
