Nepenthes treubiana (/nɨˈpɛnθz trɔɪbiˈɑːnə/; after Melchior Treub) is a tropical pitcher plant native to Western New Guinea and possibly also the island of Misool.[1][2]

This species occurs on the cliffs of the McCluer Gulf and in coastal regions of the Fakfak peninsula.[1] Although it has been reported from Misool in the past,[3][4] geographer Stewart McPherson was unable to find any plants during a recent trip to the island (although he did find N. sp. Misool).[1]

Nepenthes treubiana has no known natural hybrids.[1] No forms or varieties have been described.[1]
