    drosera hybrid naming convention question

    I have some cross pollinated pods awaiting harvest and have 1 question regarding their description....say one crosses a nidiformis which is the mother and a dielsaina which i guess would be the father.....would the resulting hybrid be called a nidiformis x dielsaina or a dielsaina x nidiformis?

    nidiformis x dielsiana. I believe that the mother always comes first..? Correct if I'm wrong.

    The accepted convention is that the pollen donor species goes after the (cross or multiplication symbol). However the first time a hybrid is identified that designation can be used regardless of the order of the pollen donor. This is because in the field while it may be possible to identify hybridization it is impossible to determine which species was the pollen donor.
