    Basically. And yes, the original spelling was to honor someone named Aldrovandi, can't remember why, but there was a spelling mishap, and it became Aldrovanda instead.
    As for the naming of the plant in question here (which after looking at my plants outside I bet yours is Dana's/Daina's Delight), I use the original spelling just to commemorate correctly who it was named after.

    His plant is just much larger. Pitchers can get very wide, the lids even wider.

    As they often are in small plants. I have a SG leuco that started out solid red, only now are the veins thinning out to make room for the white. The Daina's do the same thing: start out kind of maroon-pink, then as pitcher get bigger they get the areoles.
