    Drosera ericgreenii - a new species

    Barry Rice posted this on the ICPS forum:

    Andreas Fleischmann, Robert Gibson, and Fernando Rivadavia, 2008. Drosera ericgreenii, a new species from the fynbos of South Africa. Bothalia 38: 141-144.

    These three stars of Drosera have joined forces to name a lovely new sundew from a very restricted area in South Africa. It is rather like a somewhat smaller version of Drosera hilaris. Its scape is curved at the base, instead of emerging more or less erect as in D. hilaris.

    See the original thread for more detailed description and photos:

    I was expecting something bland, but that plant is actually pretty nice. Can't wait until it gets into cultivation.

    Beautiful plant!
    Very cool!
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    An education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.

    Nice looking plant and it doesn't look indistinguishable from any of the other sundews. In other words, it doesn't look like another D. spatulata!

    Wow, that's a beauty!
    how long does it normally take for a dew to be circulating in collections after a discovery like this?
