I got a few neps from a good seller who frequently gets wild seeds. Three of them are hybrids and now that they've started producing more pitchers and showing far more identifiable traits, I'm hoping I can get some guesses as to what these guys parents are.

First up, we have this one. Completely unknown, but just noticed the peristomes of a few newer, more mature pitchers have started to flare out. Interesting color variation on this one. I like the watermelon-pink color of the newest pitchers.

Most noticeable and consistent traits:
Flared out peristomes, red-speckled insides, the lid has a distinctive ridge on the underside (see 4th image). Fuzzy leaves. Hairy spur on the back.

Second hybrid
Apparently a N. naga hybrid, other parent is unknown. Recently been growing more unique pitchers. Came from Mt. Talang.

Distinctive Traits:
Pitchers noticeably thin and long, so far no signs of the peristomes flaring out. Wings are very unique, having more of a ridge before the hairs stick out. Lids are hairy. Leaves are just the slightest bit fuzzy.

I also have one more, but it has a bit to go to start producing more and more unique pitchers before I can make a guess at it, so far they are all very small.
