    Hi,

    Noah : My first pictures one of the two, that you suppose [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The second is not a tuberous Drosera.

    Pinguiculaman : Your first picture looks like mine. Is the second one Drosera rotundifolia ? If so, you're wrong [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Key:

    1 = Drosera spatulata 'Ruby Slippers' (Name Pending)
    2 = Drosera intermedia (Actual identity - Drosera anglica)
    3 = Drosera spatulata (Kansai type) same as 5
    4 = Drosera capillaris (green plant, white flower)
    5 = Drosera spatulata (Kansai type) same as 3

    Yes, Christian; my guess is that the first one of the last group is Drosera burmannii and the second is Drosera rotundifolia as you guessed. I know your second one had a longer endosperm than does my Drosera rotundifolia, perhaps it is Drosera anglica? I haven't looked at very many different seed yet. Just got the microscope. I will keep looking and taking photos. If I have any in my collection, I should eventually be able to find some.

    Hi,

    Yes, the first one is Drosera burmanii [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The second one is no hibernacula-forming Drosera. It is from Africa.

    Hi Joseph,

    Are you sure you do not have #2 and #4 mixed up? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img] The seed of intermedia is significantly coarse and bumpy, as in pic #4, and not as elongated as those in #2.

    http://www.omnisterra.com/botany/cp/.../pics/0077.gif


    According to the key, #2 looks like anglica and #4 like intermedia. I could see #4 being capillaris (the surface texture is not as highly obvious) but the ID on #2 is seems doubtfull to me.

    take care. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Yes, you are correct #2 does not appear to be Drosera intermedia, it was orphan seed, it was earlier separated from its parent plant and kept without a label. It may be Drosera anglica. I will need to match it to correctly identified seed to be sure.

    Happy holidays everyone.

    Hi,

    My second picture shows seeds of Drosera venusta (coccicaulis).
