    I have a definite answer to this question: Yes, there is a plant.

    The island of Socotra lies off of the coast of Yemen and is an isolated island filled with strange and bizarre species that are highly endemic in nature. A few years ago when I was studying about it online I came across an article that spoke about the various plants that grew on the island. There are some peaks on Socotra that collect a modest amount of rainfall compared to the arid low-lying portions of the island. On these mountains there is some forest that grows. In this random article that I have never been able to find ever again the author spoke of a possibly undescribed species of epiphytic Utricularia that grew in this isolated patch of forest.

    I do obsess (dream) of someday hiking those peaks and finding that Utricularia.

    Well Utricularia striatula grows on Socotra so it seems possible that there is another species on the island. That does sound very interesting.

    Are there utrics in norcal? I'd love to go with you and find some if possible. I'm obsessed with utrics, and would love to see their native habitat. I only have one growing... actually.. kinda growing... utric. Graminifolia. I've seen other photos of other utric varieties, and I'd love to learn more about them and try to grow them.

    What part of norcal were you thinking of visiting?

    I've heard of Utricularia macrorhiza and Utricularia minor at Butterfly Valley, and I'd also like to go to Willow Lake as well. Both locations are in Plumas County I believe.

    You know, I think my local water garden nursery has one of those. Last time I went, there was this plant that had its "leaves" submerged, but branched out like these utricularias and had small yellow flowers. I might go and ask them.
