    D.filiformis ssp. filiformis- has smaller flowers, is generally a smaller plant, and has reddish tentacles.
    D.filiformis var (or ssp.) tracyii is much bigger and has almost transparent tentacles and pretty big flowers.
    Also, D.filiformis ssp filiformis seems to have a more pronounced backside" of the leaves, whereas D.filiformis ssp tracyii looks more like it is totally covered by tentacles (tho close observation will show that it indeed does have a "back" (which would be the "bottom" of the leaf if it were a ground-growing plant) but it's not as obvious, as the sheer number of tentacles and the amount of "dew" they produce makes the leaves seem much more robust and almost tube-like
    These observations are just that, I'm sure there is a much more detailed explanation of the difference, which will likely follow this one
