    Got 2 ID's for 1 plant

    I got these plants from 2 diferent sources and i'm 100% sure it's the same specie. The only dilema is: what is the correct name? I have 2 names....1. D. allantostigma x omissa and 2. omissa x nitidula. I think it's the first name but i need a confirmation. Here is the plant!





    This one i got from seeds. The source of the seeds mix up the labels so it can be either nitidula or pygmaea (i hope!) Any ideas?

    thank you for any help!!!!!

    It's confusing because of proposed changes in the taxon status, elevating or proposed elevation of subspecies to species status. Refer to Lowrie and Conran article in Taxon

    Drosera allantostigma is D. nitidula ssp allantostigma
    Drosera ericksoniae is synonymous with Drosera omissa so the older D. omissa should be used.
    Drosera nitidula ssp omissa should be D. patens (since D. omissa is already taken).

    Clear? If so explain it to me

    The cross D. omissa x nitidula should be the same as D. ericksoniae/omissa x nitidula ssp nitidula although it could be any of the subspecies

    The cross D. allantostigma x omissa should be the same as D. nitidula ssp allantostigma x ericksoniae/omissa

    They should be different plants although the difference could be far more subtle as the difference between D. nitidula ssp allantostigma and D. nitidula ssp nitidula.

    Do you have photos of both plants and flowers?
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    the pics in the original post are from the plant labeled ericksoniae x nitidula wich now is omissa x nitidula like you mentioned...i'm up to date with the changes.
    the pics below are from the plant labeled allantostigma x omissa (recived as nitidula allantostigma x ericksoniae).......they look identical!...so 1 of the id is wrong

    What a fantastic shot of THAT flower!!!
    Thanx N O N for clarifying the mud.
    I hate when plants are renamed.
    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.

    ok, so after letting this cook for a while here on the forum and doing a lot of research online i got to the conclusion that this must be the allantostigma x omiss hybrid.....so if somebody here is going to get some plants or gemmae from me named this way....this is what you'll get....i apologize in advance if i didn't get it right
