    Welcome to the world of plant taxonomy and the view of a particular German taxonomist. To better understand the taxonomic database format and abbreviations in the CP Database, see

    Thanks all!
    I had already see, but I can't find the answer.

    (((with pink or white blooms.)))
    I find a strange data, I live in Hong Kong, I know the D. spatulata very well. Many people have a confusion between D.spatulata and D. oblanceolata.

    N: $[Drosera ' Hong Kong ' {D'Amato}]
    P: Savage Garden:129 (1998)
    S: =[Drosera spatulata {Labill.}]
    HC: name not registered with IRA, description insufficient
    Nominant: ?P.D'Amato
    Introducer: ?P.D'Amato, from Hong Kong
    Description: Savage Garden:129 (1998)
    "[Drosera ' Hong Kong ' {D'Amato}] forms have rosettes about 2.5 cm (one inch) across, with pink or white blooms."

    2. At the LFR, what's the meaning of this number.
    LFR:
    18: Japan-Korea
    21: Taiwan
    24: Southeastern China
    97: South China
    You stumped me too. So when in doubt ask the master and I emailed Rick Walker, the CP Database Webmeister.

    Rick replied:

    These are "Location Floristic Regions".

    # General outline following A. Takhtajan (1986)
    # Floristic Regions of the World, University of California Press, Berkeley.
    #
    # TDWG region (political unit) codes according to:
    # http://www.bgbm.fu-berlin.de/TDWG/geo/geotdwg1.dtx

    Essentially a set of bio-regions delineated and predefined so that any
    region can be specified with a small (<153) integer. Much better than
    political regions for talking about plant locations.

    This is documented in the raw db itself, which is always accessible from
    the (non published) URL: ]http://www.omnisterra.com/botany/cp/data/jans.db
