    I have seen it spelled both ways and assumed it was the same plant. I decided I'd find out for sure though from you folks. ‘Cause you know what they say happens when you assume something.

    I asked the same question and this is the answer I received:

    It is correctly Drosera spatulata (not spathulata) as this is how it was registered.

    But it is correctly Nepenthes spathulata (not spatulata) as this is how it was registered.

    Cheers

    "Drosera spathulata" is not a valid name !!!!

    it cames from a Latin word (spat(h)ulatus ???) which meens spoon-shaped and was written with and without h.

    But the only valid names are Nepenthes spathulata and Drosera spatulata.
