Nepenthes × merrilliata (/nˈpɛnθz mɛˌrɪliˈɑːtə/; a blend of merrilliana and alata) is a natural hybrid involving N. alata and N. merrilliana. Like its two parent species, it is endemic to the Philippines, but limited by the natural range of N. merrilliana to Samar[2] as well as Mindanao and its offshore islands.
