    pygmy sundew help

    I got this labeled Drosera dichrosepala ssp. Enoedes but that was in question last time I posted photos.











    I got this one as Drosera pulchella








    How about this one




    thanks

    no clue for the first one...i'm not a pygmy expert...
    thats not D. pulchella

    the last one looks like D. villosa/(?)ascendens.
    wooly sundew. D. paradoxa? D. petiolaris? D. dilato-petiolaris?

    Very nice photos! The correct spelling for the one is enodes and Sean Spence may know if it should be called something else. I remember him correcting plants I received as enodes and stelliflora. D. pulchella has a wide stem, much wider, relatively speaking, than let's say a nitdula.

    It's definitely a subspecies of D. dichrosepala but it is very difficult to identify which. From the rosette it looks more like D. lasiantha but the flower is unmistakebly D. dichrosepala. I would tend towards D. dichrosepala ssp. dichrosepala rather than D. dichrosepala ssp. enodes as the rosette and lamina are dark green and deep red, whereas ssp. enodes is usually a pale greenand the laminas thinner.

    The second seems to be D. paleacea ssp. roseana. A flowerscape is required for a definitive ID.

    The third is D. ascendans

    The final D. paradoxa
