    I'm looking at the Humboldt site and no, it doesn't look like ericksoniae. At the moment,. I'm looking at a bunch of pictures by a French hobbyist and mine looks like one of his that is labeled D. ? That was frustrating.



    Another group of pictures (ICPS Seedbank) has one that looks like it, with this editorial comment:


    Drosera nitidula subsp. omissa
    A relatively boring plant that has been the mother of many spectacular hybrids. It is quite fecund.


    And here's one that also looks like it, labeled D. occidentalis



    D. allanmtostigma also looks like it:



    This is how most pictures have it:



    LOL! This is a Tamlin picture:




    This is time consuming!

    This is another Tamlin picture:



    Here's a Vic Brown ericksoniae:



    Here's an ericksoniae from Bestcarnivores:



    Here's the Bestcarnivores site link, which is the most comprehensive site I've seen for Droseras:

    http://www.bestcarnivorousplants.org...rie/sr50-.html

    Ooooh, check this out... there is a white flower and a pink flower version of ericksoniae:



    Drosera ericksoniae
    N.Marchant & Lowrie (1992)
    Grouping:
    Pygmy Drosera Loading...
    Variation:


    * "f. pink flower"
    * "f. white flower"


    Synonym:


    * sp. 'Erickson's Omissa' = ericksoniae
    * ericksonae = ericksoniae

    Distribution:
    Western Australia



    I think I may just have the white flower version of this plant. I'm done looking!

    I started actively reducing the photo period yesterday, but simply moving the plant under my nightstand at a determined time, and bringing it out in the morning. I used to just set it somewhere dark, and that didn't work. We'll see if I can get anything by doing this.

    I though the white and pink flower thing was the answer to the controversy. I didn't know that the two existed. Anyways, here is what I had as D. nitidula omissa:



    Here is the D. allantostigma:



    What confuses me are the Lake plants. Is this really Lake Badgerup?



    And this really Lake Carburup?



    From 2 years earlier, this is the original Lake carburup:



    D. nitidula-occidentalis:



    D. ericksoniae:



    And while we're at it, how come MY pics were never worthy on the Humboldt site?!

    Based on the flower and plant itself my guess is the D. eriksoniae/omissa is Drosera patens (formerly Drosera nitidula ssp omissa) or a hybrid. The red styles/stigma are a characteristic of the former nitidula complex. The renaming and species elevation could have led to the mislabeling. Wrong: Drosera nitidula ssp omissa -> Drosera omissa -> Drosera ericksoniae. Correct: Drosera nitidula ssp omissa -> Drosera patens

    Based on the flowers it looks to me your Drosera nitidula omissa is x Lake Badgerup.

    Yeah, in one fell swoop, Ms. erickson lost her place! And who is this patens? In all seriousness, my ericksoniae is renamed and appears to be the white flower version. D. allantostigma looks correct and so does Lake badgerup. Does Lake Badgerup have a whire flower and Lake Carburup have a pink flower?

    Well the D. patens ID is by no means definite, more detailed photos of the flower and plants would help.
