Nepenthes krabiensis is a tropical pitcher plant native to southern Thailand, where it grows at 600–700 m above sea level.[1] It is closely related to N. rosea.[1]

The specific epithet krabiensis is derived from the name of Krabi Province, to which it is apparently endemic, and the Latin ending -ensis, meaning "from".[1]
