    D. formosa (sort of looks like a pink D. brevifolia)

    Germany? Do you live somehwere in Europe?
    If not you and him are taking quite a risk in sending the plants to you, the fines are HUGE.

    I know that D. natalensis is definetly a species, not sure about the other two though.

    D.formosa=form of spatulata, Island of Formosa=Taiwan
    D.kaieteurensis= rare species from S.America. If it is without location data, it is probably not the real thing.
    D.natalensis= Drosera species from South Africa.

    The kaieteurensis might be spatulata. As the old Drosera saying goes...if you don't know what it is, its probably spatulata.
