    They are all temperate species from above the Equator.

    I hope you're not trying to confuse us with hybrids.....

    Anyway, my guesses (assuming they are species) are- D. linearis (could be filiformis), D. intermedia, D. anglica (the only one I'm slightly confident in).

    Damn, you're good Sean.

    1 - D. filiformis var filiformis

    2 - ok these are actually a bit dicey - probably D. tokaiensis - which is most likely a hybrid - they came as D. spatulata seeds last year - if they are D. spatulata they could be from below the equator - definitely a temperate form though. These seedlings are second generation. One of the parent plants just died and the other is either following or going semi-dormant. They came out of dormancy maybe 6-8 weeks ago.

    3 - correct - D. anglica

    While you're at it perhaps you can confirm these pygmies:

    D. pygmaea? - it flowered when I was out of town so I did not observe the flower


    D. nitidula x pulchella? one of the plants had pink flowers



    D. occidentalis ssp australis f. warriup? No flowers observed open. Flowering Utricularia in the pot doesn't help.

    I do my best. :-)

    I can't detect anything that would cause me to think the pygmies are not correctly labelled. It's impossible to be sure without shots of the flowers.

    Hey there N O N those are some fantastic photos of pygmy dews, I have never been that close to one before.I mean seen one that close-up before, Even though I am by far no expert on pymies, I agree with Sean, have to see the flower.
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?
