Notes

Specimens of this hybrid share the triangular stem, smaller lid with glandular crest, and pitcher coloration of N. burbidgeae, while with N. rajah they share the peltate leaf tip and the expanded peristome with an undulate outer edge.
As with other wild collected hybrids, the parentage is assumed rather than known. Nepenthes burbidgeae is an uncommon species, as is N. rajah and this hybrid is correspondingly a great deal rarer.A
[Move to typification] Four duplicates (at UKMS) are cited as the holotype in the protologue, of these one (sheet 4) appears to be the only sheet annotated with "Type Specimen", although clearly all duplicates were used in the description by the authors. As sheet 4 comprises a pitcher alone, sheet 3 which includes leaf-blades and stem material would probably be a better lectotype. Without having seen the material we have deferred lectotypifying any particular element. B
