Hard to say at that size. Young or recently emerged D.cistiflora look fairly similar to both D.trinervia and D.pauciflora.
My Grow List:
My Photo Thread :
It's not trinervia. That species has notably wider leaves and a different method of unfurling the leaves. I have both D. trinervia and an unknown cistiflora or relative in the same pot, they're quite different looking. Amongst the cistiflora relatives, I'm thinking mature plants and/or flowers are necessary for good ID at this point though...
They came to me as D. cistiflora, so that's what I'll call them, unless proven otherwise.
D. cistiflora when first coming up from dormancy. It does look a lot like D. trinervia
However after several weeks: (not the same plants but came out of dormancy about a month earlier)

Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
I've noticed there seems to be a large amount of variation in the growth pattern of cistiflora variants, with the shape of the emerging leaves and the unfurling details, though they bear similarity enough at least in the latter that the difference from trinervia is quite clear.
