    This came in labelled as U. prehensilis.. hmm wrong color.
    Thoughts on what it might be? I haven't done alot of examining yet but it would be nice to get some other opinions so I can hopefully narrow the field.
    Thanks!

    Hi Tony,

    your plant looks for me like U. graminifolia.

    Just have a look at the following link for comparison:

    Best regards,

    Thanks Matthias for your thoughts. Here are some more photos. I have not looked in detail with the U. graminifolia I have as I am still working out the details on this plant first. It is one of the possibilities on my list along with U. heterosepela.

    Here are some more pics. Also the inflorescence is not twining but erect instead with a few bracts along the length.

    Another view of the flower (slightly overexposed ;/)


    Back of the flower showing calyx etc.


    Back of the flower showing calyx and bract and from what I can tell no bracteoles.


    Picture of the tip of the lower calyx


    Leaf top and bottom showing what looks like 3 veins..


    Trap side view


    Trap top view


    Internal glands


    Next I will have a look at the U. graminifolia for comparison (assuming it is labelled correctly since it has not flowered yet.)
    I have also tried to pollinate it so maybe I will have a capsule and seeds to compare in Taylors also...
