|Botanical illustration of N. cid from Cheek and Jebb's type description|
This species belongs to the informal "N. micramphora group", which also includes N. abgracilis from northeastern Mindanao and N. micramphora from southeastern Mindanao. N. cid harbors diminutive, subcylindrical pitchers that narrow to the middle and gradually expand towards the base.
The authors recommend that this species be assessed as Critically Endangered because the only population is composed of two individuals in a region facing extensive habitat conversion and issues from commercial logging.
