    I know I'm asking for trouble jumping in the middle of this, but I don't think a potential misidentification merits so much drama and finger pointing. Just my two cents. Let's just have fun here guys

    All the plant entries look beautiful so far everyone!

    Edit: On the other hand, misidentification will negatively affect people you trade with/ sell to.
    So it was misidentified in the past; so what? That happens all the time. It was an honest mistake starting with the vendor you bought it from, as you said. But NOW that you have the correct information from a leading expert, I would fix it so that you're not sending people the wrong plant. No big deal

    It is a Beautiful plant though Mass

    Quite the beast you've got there my friend.
    WELL THEN.. I WAS going to enter a D. hilaris this month, but since I got it from Mark.. it just doesn't feel right. Going up against him, with a plant I got from him seems like borderline cheating.. At any rate, here's an update pic for you Mark. They're doing swimmingly: http://i1140.photobucket.com/albums/...ps41b67615.jpg
    As for my entry this month, think I'll enter a plant that Mark got from me!
    D. villosa (Serra de Ibitipoca, South East of Minas Gerais, SE Brazil) (front most plant)

    If the leading expert on south American Drosera confirmed the incorrect identification, I would listen.
    Editing the original post only to make the incorrect name in bold after the fact can only be interpreted as an invitation to more public conflict.
    I don't see what good can be gained

    just my 2 cents.

    Goodness! I remember tangling with mass over the IDs on his D. ascendens a while back based on information Fernando discussed at the last ICPS conference. I'm glad someone is finally backing me up.

    Thanks guys. That lavicola is a beast! It grows faster than almost everything else in my terrarium, which is weird, because it's supposed to be slow.

    I do enjoy a good stag horn fern. They have such a sculptural look to them.

    I'm just going by what CZ plants sells them as. Perhaps they need to mature a bit more?
    Remove my entry before Ron has a baby.
    Nice plants! Just wanted to let you know that this is the same species as the one you had labelled as D.villosa, which I've called D.ascendens for the past 20 years, and which will have a new name in a few weeks.


    Best wishes,
    Fernando Rivadavia

    P.S. The Itararé plants are one of my personal collections, from the early 90's.
