Are you sure it's a species and not a hybrid? I checked out
the pictures, and three possibilities came to my mind: N. ventricosa,
N. burkeii, or N. x ventrata (ventricosa x alata).

I compared the pictures against my ventricosa and ventrata, and I've
found differences which might rule them out. But they're close. I
don't have burkeii.
