    Identifying the Drosera should not be too difficult a task.

    He's the guy from Little Shop of Horrors.

    The musical is way better than that crappy original.

    Where's Mozie? He's from South Africa, maybe he knows what it is or someone who can ID the critter.

    Just got an email from Bihrmann and he has found a possible name for it.
    Apiaceae, Alepidea
    carpensis or A. delicatula.

    I will check these out.

    Rooting around on the web earlier this week I ran across the University of Connecticut Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Growth Facilities which has an extensive collection of South African flora. Peeking at the staff listing one of the research aides is an ICPS and NECPS member and is responsible for the EBB CPs. I shot him off an email and he said he spent two seasons doing research in RSA but hadn't seen the plants in questions. His guess was "Arctopus (family Apiaceae)-- it's pretty similar to juvenile plants of A. echinatus. There are two other species in the genus, about which I know nothing, and it could very well be one of those.
    Arctopus are weird little tuberous plants in the carrot family, with very bristly leaves". He was going to check with some of his friends in South Africa.

    Either way that's a cool looking plant. Definitely looks like it could've been a forerunner of the VFT.
