Generally not possible to id semps from pics, unless they are unique in some way. Examples would be Oddity or Fame Monstrose.

A lovely green NOID you have there Pia. Love the cilia lining the leaves.

Likely a s. tectorum or tectorum hybrid, but no way to know for sure without genetic analysis. Unfortunately, while the science would likely be able to do that, it is unlikely that anyone would have the funds to do the research and analysis, at least at this point in time.
