A very sought after and rare species. Nepenthes ephippiata is closely related to N. lowii and also shows very similar pitchers
It also occurs in Borneo and inhabits altitudes of 1300-2000 m.a.s.l.. Depending on the locality, the transitions from one to the other species can be almost fluid.
The lowii-like upper pitchers are less funnel-shaped and have a less narrow constriction. The lids are usually studded with fewer bristles. Lower pitchers are much stouter than those of N. lowii
The form of Gunung Rajah shows very typical characteristics of N. ephippiata and is well on the ephippiata side of the spectrum
Due to the slow growth, large plants are rare
