    The seeds look South African to me. The testa on the end(s) are typical of South African seeds. D. intermedia should have blunt ends. Look closely at the seed are they covered with papillae (blunt fingers)?

    D. intermedia seed:

    "Seeds reddish brown, oblong, 0.7-1 mm. long, blunt at the ends, densely and irregularly covered with long papillae"

    Very nice specimen....definitely NOT d. intermedia. As it has been said already, it is d. nidiformis (99,999%) :-)|

    OUCH! Gee.. thanks, but no. It's been there for at least 2 years. Considering it was there last year when I first stepped foot into the bog, which is when the seed was collected.

    Didn't say who, just postulated a theory of how not who

    Wouldn't point a finger at anyone. Didn't mean to offend.
