    What I really think is nice about these microphotos is that they were all made with a childs toy, called the "Digital Blue QX3+" created by cooperation between Intel and Mattel. Sold online at Toys R Us for about $50.

    Sorry if this sounds like a commercial. I am just sharing something I think is a nice tool for a nice price.

    BTW there is a website that gives precise guidance for enhancing the abilities of this particular device. Microscope page at Florida State University

    Here is a new one. Is no one going to see if they can specifically idenfity 1-5? Goldtrap was close on some of them.

    Below is another one at 200x. This one I will offer some hints on. It was discovered in my lifetime and it is a very tropical plant.

    Hi,

    Here are my suggestions :

    The first two pictures are Dionaea and Drosophyllum.

    The pictures with numbers :

    1. Drosera dielsiana
    2. Drosera binata
    3. Drosera nidiformis
    4. Drosera capillaris
    5. Drosera spatulata

    How many of these are right ? I hope at least one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The last seed could be Drosera petiolaris or something in this complex.

    If i see these pictures, i can't wait to get my new microscope [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Joseph,

    My guesses:

    1. filliformis
    2. D. anglica
    3. capensis
    4. D. intermedia
    5. capensis (okay.... so I'm obviously clueless...)

    The last two from Christian:

    D. indica or burmannii?
    D. something tuberous upright.. :P

    Did I miss em all?

    Hmm... gotta get out my stereomicroscope and take a look at some of the stuff in my seedbank! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
