    Those are great databases NaN but they all missing something: the pygmy hybrids. The hybrids are the problem, they are hard to id ...not the pure sp.
    I missed these links:
    http://kent.la.coocan.jp/Pygmy_Drosera_class.htm
    http://www.carnivorousplants.org/see.../D_pygmies.htm
    http://www.carnivorousplants.org/see...pygmyMugs1.htm
    http://www.carnivorousplants.org/see...pygmyMugs2.htm
    http://www.carnivorousplants.org/see...pygmyMugs3.htm
    http://www.carnivorousplants.org/see...pygmyMugs4.htm

    A few of the hybrids are there, you just have to dig through them. Some don't have obvious links but you can find them.

    Some of the others can be tracked down in Barry Rice's galleries and buried on the ICPS website. The ICPS website has plenty of photos that you have to dig around to find as they aren't always indexed.

    I found a nursery that is selling D. pulchella x nitidula (reverse from yours). In the description it states the flowers are pink.

    EDIT: My mistake Mark. I thought you were referring to the nitidula x pulchella. I overlooked your other post talking about the occidentalis x pulchella.

    And when will we learn to control?

    Thanks all for the help. As you can see I'm definitely not a pygmy expert but learning. Definitely some great info here.

    It looks like there are some experts online. This thread should help many who are passed on plants that are mislabelled. Thanks all again. PAK if your out there you bought the above species from me labeled as I received it nitidula x pulchella in the NASC auction. The plant should be labeled as marc stated above. Hope we're still freinds. Sorry about that.

    I also received a pot labeled as nitidula x pulchella from you DroseraBug in a trade about a month ago I'd say. Should they be labeled as omissa (ericksoniae) x pulchella as well? I just ordered a plant labeled as ericksoniae x pulchella so I'll be able to compare them if and when it flowers.
