    It's out of the country, so the same rules may not apply.

    Actually he is not. CITES stands for Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species. So CITES rules still apply. This is why you need PPQ621 to import any Nepenthes even though they are just CITES I

    The seller misspelled the species name as well as using improper capitalization. That would suggest to me the seller doesn't know what they are doing.

    The ICPS seedbank usually has Sarracenia oreophila seeds available to members. They have the permits which allows them to sell and ship them within the United States and will provide you with the paperwork to show that the seeds were obtained legally. They are working getting the CITES permits to allow them to ship internationally.

    I wasn't talking about importing anything, simply suggesting that the restriction/regulation of sales of that species within Australia may not be the same as America.

    That was also how I interpreted CH's comment. Some of our UK friends have mentioned they can move S. oreophila freely thru Europe with no restrictions.

    Cheers,

    That may be so but the auctions states "Ships worldwide". Hopefully the seller has the proper paperwork to do so.
