    Hello William,

    I think, the correct spelling of this plant is Drosera burmanni - with only one i. This goes back to a grammar mistake in Vahls descriptions.

    Hi Christian

    I hadn't heard that before. I always thought that once something was published, mistake or not, it stood as it was described and published.

    Interesting...I always heard 'burmannii' was correct. I guess I need to do some erasing...

    Hi,

    On our German Board we were told, that Vahl originally published this species as Drosera burmanni. So, this is the correct name for it.
