    Hopefully someone can help, although I don't have as much info as I'd like. I found these Utrics in an acidic quiet pond on my parents property. They are totally freefloating (not in substrate), the main stem is not branched, and they're located in western NY. Unfortunately I don't know what their flowers look like yet. I'm interested in positively I.D.ing this since the NY Natural Heritage Program only has U. minor located in this county, and I'd like to contribute to their data. Thanks for any ideas you might have.

    That looks suspiciously like U. radiata, buy I didn't think radiata grew that far north. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    that is not radiata. radiata grows in a 'rossette' [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I believe this is U. radiata as well (hard to tell without seeing the bladders which are the best way of determining species).

    Spec, the rosette develops as a flotation device to support the flower scape. The actual plant is beneath the surface, and has this sort of branching.

    that's what I was thinking, so I guess I'll just wait for the floats and flowers to develop
