Well Jan, it looks more like a Sarracenia pitcher then a Cephalotus
pitcher. I don't see signs of a "wing" or margin rudiments on the
surface of the pitchers.
For me it is difficult to tell whether the pitchers are formed by
peltation or coalescence, so I will enjoy them for another 3 or 4
weeks. Then I will cut one off, put it in alcohol en send it to you,
so you can examine it.
