    The description mentions the surface areas being covered with conical glands...
    "All vegetative parts (except the leaf petiole and distal ) and growth of base more or less covered with a mixture of spherical and sedentary shortly conical glands "
    (google translation)

    Would these meet that criteria?

    @ av: dunno---i think so. but then again, im defaulting yours as a reference point. i am sure you and a few others have the real deal; especially if yours came from a primary vendor overseas. mine, i got from within the states so my situation is a little more iffy. skiier's explanation and photographs did help ease my mind a little, which is why i havent just went ahead and done an overseas order already.

    In just a few days of moving my "U. quelchii" to a net pot and no standing water it's already produced a runner with a couple tiny leaves from the side of the pot.
    Maybe I've been keeping it far too wet and now it'll move faster. Can only hope!

    I hope that I'm wrong but as I watch my plants grow (2 'sold-as' U. quelchii, 2 'real' U. quelchii, U. tricolor & other U. foliosa), it is getting harder to avoid the conclusion that the plants in question are indeed tricolor & not U. quelchii ...

    - while the leaf shape is not definitive, none of the pics (or my plants) appear identical to young U. quelchii & none have shown the characteristic thick leaf found in typical U. quelchii (incl Av's) pics
    - both of my imitators are growing faster than any other Orchidioides / Iperua in my collection.
    - close-up pics of the traps seem to be definitive for a tricolor ID
    - the ebay seller is using a pic of U. quelchii that is unrelated to the plants he is selling. DD procured his plants from this person & neither have seen adult leaves or blooms. (are both statements true?)
    - Nicole states that she is 90% certain of a U. tricolor identification
    - Section foliosa utrics are notoriously invasive ... (which provides a possible explanation - assuming that the potential mis-identification was not deliberate)
    - U. tricolor has significant variability in leaf shape. Some U. tricolor 'escaped' into the bottom of my 'little weed utric tank' a while ago. I keep relocating other pots to keep them away from possible infiltration (I really need to strip the tank...). Here are some examples of the non-typical leaves (in the 4th pic - also notice the thin leaf resting on a typical - bottom right):






    ------------------------------------------ Later edit...
    On a somewhat related (& ironic) note, I just received an order of somewhat-difficult-to-find-in-USA Utrics from Europe and what shape are the immature U. geminiloba leaves? Yup ...

    Maybe we all have U. geminiloba - I'd wanted that one too! LOL
