    What ssp. of S. rubra is this?

    I obtained these plants without adequate labeling information. Can anyone tell from the photos what subspecies of S. rubra this is?











    Thanks

    I'm no ssp. expert but the pitcher shape looks just like my rubra ssp. rubra.
    I regret little to nothing!

    I was thinking wherryi too but then some of the S. rubra ssp. rubra photos at Bob's photofinder look close too. I need a dichotomous key with all of the ssp. in it. Does anyone know of a key? Look at this photo of gulfensis. The pitchers look really similar:

    I don't want to jack the thread but I have the same question about my rubra. I got it this winter and it came unidentified. I'm fairly sure it's a rubra but I have no idea what ssp. It has tons of relitively small pitchers. If it helps the one flower one of the divisions made had very dark red petals (darker than the one's in drosera bugs pic) and a green umbrella part (can't remember the scientific name). Please help out drosera bug first since this is his thread but if you can identify mine to I'd be glad for the help.

    looks like gulfensis

    Is that S. rubra ssp. rubra? If it is, then it's probably S. rubra ssp. wherryi becuase in that pic, it's hood points down. In the picture of S. rubra ssp. wherryi in the Savage Garden, it looks exactly the same, except your's is nicer since it's more red.
