    I am in a bit of a pickle. I had hoped to ID this by the flowers and post the species name, but my fine feathered friends decimated my pot of this confused species to build their nests. Grrrrr. The root disturbance claimed the rest of the rosettes before they flowered for me.

    If anyone has C-1 and can post a photo of the flowers, you will do a service for the many folk I sent this to. They should be in flower for you now.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Tamlin,

    I have some subpar digital pictures. I think I have an analog picture that has been developed as well. I'll scan it tomorrow.

    Here's one of the blurry pictures.

    More at
    here.

    The developed picture should be much better. Also, like I mentioned in another post, the labels might've gotten mixed during the fumigation move. Hopefully, these pictures won't make things more confusing.

    Emesis,

    Thank you my man! I do believe this is the plant, and that you have it right. My inclination is that it is D. nitidula x pygmaea, but I am sending the photos out to Phill Mann who should have a definitive answer for us soon.

    Tamlin,

    The coloration of the digital pics are off. The flowers are more pinkish than they appear in the pics. I'll hook up my scanner tonight for the photograph.

    Aside: I'm 90% sure that I mixed up the labels on the D. puchella and D. pygmaea "ESA", as D. puchella have stockier petiole.

    Emesis,

    There will be no problem telling D. pulchella from D. pygmaea, you have it right the petiole will give you the answer.

    C-1 was more problematic since by gemmae time the rosettes had withered lamina making it hard to tell. Based on these photos, I am confident that Phill will agree that this is a hybrid.

    Spec,

    Thanks for the offer, but I do have this plant in cultivation. It is about to flower for me and that will further confirm C-1.

    Well here is Phill's reply:

    I wish you would ask an easy question.

    The plant is obviously D. nitidula ssp omissa X.... but what.
    Did you have gemmae of D. nitidula X pygmaea as I don't know this hybrid.

    If I had to make a guess I would have said D. nitidula ssp omissa X occidentalis ssp occidentailis as the styles appear to be slightly clubbed but not ovate at their apex and they are in 4's.
    ____

    I'll be researching this based on Phill's evaluation. I still am inclined to think D. pygmaea is the other parent, but I gotta do some digging.

    Ok, I have dug! Reviewing my photos, I note that D. nitidula ssp. occidentalis x D. pygmaea has a different flower form, and expresses a greater number of 4-merous flowers.

    Drosera nitidula susp. omissa X occidentalis subsp. occidentalis while very close has white flowers:

    The mention of pink flowers is what nailed it for me: Drosera nitidula ssp. omissa x unknown "Lake Carbarup form".

    I feel confident that this is the name that should replace C-1
