So during winter last year the greenhouse I work at received a ton of sarracenia, flytraps and sundews, and now that we're getting into spring the plants are starting to grow again, and this particular sarr caught my eye. Looks like an oreophila to me, but would love some extra opinions.

I'm going to say no, not an oreophila.
While the pitcher looks similar (many species do), the flower does not. Pure oreophila have yellow flowers.
That's not to say it isn't a hybrid with some oreo in it, but not a pure oreo.

It could be an oreophila x rubra hybrid. That would explain the red color on the sepals.
