    It's funny how everyone's "D. pygmaea" plants turned out to be a form of the nitidula complex. I purchased mine off ebay, and noticed that the guy who sold them probably sold the notorious "D. pygmaea" gemmae to around 15-20 people. I wonder how it got mislabeled in the first place---i was originally wondering if it actually is nitidula x pygmaea, but my flowers on that hybrid are yet to open.
    I'll post pics if they look similar.

    Seems we all have enough knowledge to be dangerous and confused! I know one thing... I can't tell one nitidula from another. Their leaves and flowers look alike!

    The ICPS seedbank says:

    Many gemmae traded around are incorrectly identified. The reasons for this include incorrect ID in the first place or sloppy or lost labels. The most common reason is gemmae migrating between pots. When rain drops hit plants with gemmae, the little plantlets explode out and can travel tens of cm. It is best to protect plant with gemmae from rain. Please see the pages on pygmy Drosera mug shots to help identify

    These shots of D. nitidula hybrids shows how subtle the differences can be:

    Given the pink flowers and five petals my best guess is the "D. pygmaea" is actually Drosera nitdula ssp. nitidula x occidentalis "Carbarup" (though not necessarily "Carbarup"). D. x "Lake Badgerup" has white flowers, usually 4 but sometimes 5 petals.

    So confusing!

    D. allantostigma:



    D. erricksoniae:





    And for the lark of it, from gemmae I received:

    D. nitidula - omissa:



    Lake Carburup:






    D. palaceae:



    The highly disputed D. pygmaea:








    Lake badgerup?





    D. nitidula occidentalis?:



    All pictures taken from my collection, during the past 3 years.

    I don't think you have D. ericksoniae (omissa) - the flowers should be purple-ish (could be washed out) but the styles should be white/greenish.

    These pages should help (confuse?):

    ok Jim....this is what is see!
    pisc 1 and 2 are the same plant wich is probably allantostigma x omissa
    4 i think it's a lake badgerup
    5 it's a carbarup (as far as i know is D. "Carbarup" not lake carbarup....but that's less important)
    7 looks to be a paleacea ...can't tell on the subsp.
    8...i don't see the flower but if it's small and all white then your id is correct
    9 and 12...if those flowers are pink they probably are the carbarup
    13....can be
    Due to the very different growing conditions that we have it is hard to id the plants by the look fo the rosette in most cases....so we have to rely on the flowers.

    There is a white flowered form of omissa out there NaN....not only the pink/purpule one that we all know!.http://img136.imageshack.us/img136/1...ndweieblte.jpg........
