    I thought all might enjoy seeing the many species in the petiolaris complex in one topic.

    These are from my collection:

    d. fulva


    d. broomensis


    d. caduca


    d. kenneallyi


    d. aff ordensis--narrow leaf


    d. aff. ordensis--red traps


    d. dilatato-petiolaris


    d. falconeri


    d. petiolaris

    Enjoy!
    Peter

    Alex, it is my understanding the aff. stands for affinis (latin word) which means "like". In other words these may not be the true species, in this case D. ordensis, but a species similar to it.
    I have heard that until a taxonomist verifies the species it should retain the affinis word before the species!
    Until then, there are many forms of these species which is all the more fascinating!
    Peter.

    Those are really good looking pictures! The D. Caduca is interesting. It doesn't look very much like a Drosera.
