    Interesting, Butch, but painfully behind the times. Now with waxing, "superhydrophilic hairy surface[s]" are all but unheard of out here in the West -- aside from a "landing strip" or two; the 1970s retro appearance of H. minor var. pilosa not withstanding . . .

    Nice You'll find an article by the same authors on a similar mechanism in Nepenthes which I've read before, and is very interesting as well. If you enjoyed this article, you'll really enjoy their other paper too

    (citation # 19: Bohn HF, Federle W. 2004 Insect aquaplaning: Nepenthes pitcher plants capture prey with the peristome, a fully wettable water-lubricated anisotropic surface. Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA 101, 14 138–14 143. (doi:10.1073/pnas.0405885101) )

    I have some chiffon left over from one of my college classes and a H. minor. Wait, that sounds horrible!
