    D. sessilifolia can definitely get over an inch across, even in cultivation if the confirmed photos I can find are anything to go by. Though the glandular nature of the flower heads looks rather distinct from burmannii, and I may look at that when the various plants mature and start flowering again.
    On the other hand, I am very open to acquiring seeds of any confirmed sessilifolia to restart that taxon in my collection....

    I grow D. burmannii Beerwah indoors under artificial lights. With good care the rosette gets up to 2.5 inches in diameter. D. sessilifolia from Chapada dos Guimaraes grown in my conditions is easily distinguished and much smaller. Both plants have pink tinted flowers. Fernando Rivadavia convinced himself burmannii only has white flowers. For that reason, he and John Brittnacher accused me of mixing up my plants with hybrids I made between the two.

    Again, if you happen to have extra seeds of a confirmed sessilifolia, I'd be more than happy to restart that species in my collection with a confirmed identity and/or locality; otherwise I will still have to leave these plants as semi-mystery in labeling since if they're not what I received them as, it's anyone's guess what they properly are. And I would be rather surprised anyone would say burmannii only has white flowers; 'Pilliga Red' has been around for a long time and part of its description is pink flowers....

    Wow you're right, that Pilliga Red looks exactly like my sessilifolia:-o

    Mine, on the other hand, could almost never be mistaken for such as the leaves were far too long.

    D. cistiflora "Purple Flower" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    This weird batch sent up one shoot that reached a full one inch before producing flowers

    Crossed this with intermedia "Roraima" and it took, both directions; hoping for subtropical x hybrida's!
    D. filiformis "typical" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Variation in this home-made burmannii cross; with the debated identity of the maternal parent, still not sure entirely what they should be called. The third image looks a whole lot like the mother

    A small soil change, and this guy suddenly looks a lot happier

    D. unknown spatulata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. affinis "Uningi Pans, Zambia" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Another offspring of this mystery hybrid; is the parent sessilifolia, burmannii, or a hybrid??

    Still haven't caught an open bloom on this one
    D. felix by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

    Much like the capes, this one has managed to show up all over the greenhouse
    D. sp. Lantau Island by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. tomentosa by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Not finlaysoniana (I grow that too), but another indica-complex plant that actually might be that species. And it's more vigorous
    D. indica Pink flower by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Another skeptical ID plant....they look fine when young, but go funky once they hit about an inch
    D. "sessilifolia" Brittnacher by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    You can see the line where light turns to shade
    D. adelae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    I really enjoy my creepy pot

    Repotting all the tuberous dews as they go dormant into a more suitable sand soil, so got pics of tubers here and there
    D. hookeri "Greenvale, Victoria Au" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. affinis "Uningi Pans, Zambia" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Outdoor dews also in great condition

    D. burmannii "Humpty Doo, NT" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. "sessilifolia" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. schizandra by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. 'Marston Dragon' by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. dichotoma by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. multifida by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. multifida extrema by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    D. multifida extrema by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

    With seeds coming from both the multifida extrema and dichotoma, I appear to have possibly recreated 'Marston Dragon' and whichever one is the reverse cross; all that's needed are for the seeds to germinate.
