    Carnivorous Plants in Michigan

    Here are some pictures I took on a recent visit to West Lake Nature Preserve and Bishop's Bog Preserve in Portage, Michigan. I hope you all enjoy them.



    West Lake Nature Preserve:




    Cypripedium acaule



    Drosera rotundifolia













    Larix laricina



    Monotropa uniflora







    Sarracenia purpurea


















    Bishop's Bog Preserve:

    Might be either Drosera x eloisiana (Previously known as Drosera x beleziana) or Drosera intermedia





    Utricularia geminiscapa







    Utricularia gibba

    Thank you! Yeah, it's not too often you see Monotropa but along the trail there was quite a lot of them.

    So, this is the first time I've heard about a name change for D. x beleziana. Why is this a requirement? People make mistakes, and incorrect herbarium references are not uncommon; the name was still used to reference a hybrid of D. rotundifolia x intermedia....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Apparently the name for the hybrid was changed because the example for D. x beleziana was not actually a hybrid between D. rotundifolia x intermedia but actually just D. rotundifolia.
