    Bob,

    You might try contacting Phill Mann regarding the tuberous species you mention. Phill has an enormous collection of private photos of many of the Australian plants, and possible he might help you by posting some. As far as the South African species go, these plants are more myth than reality I'm afraid, many known only from single collections.

    I might be able to come up with a photo of Drosera hirticalyx as I know of a grower who cultivates this.

    Dear Bob ,

    I searched for long exactly the same pictures , and I never found any...I know your site (excellent work , btw).

    Try to contact the German , they'r growing some odd plants. See some excellent petiolaris-komplex pictures on their forum here :
    http://www.carnivoren.org/cgi-bin....2722546

    They also announced some new described African Droseras , I'll send you the link to the pictures as soon as I have it.

    Did you ever have been in contact with Fernando Rivadeira directly ? Hasn't he some pictures from his "private" library ?

    Regarding D.cayenensis , it's under local protection now. I met a person who had to work in the Sylvolab this summer , but she didn't managed to shoot some pictures (and she was working on Utrics...grrrr &#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    Regarding some african plants , as D.katangensis , or D.bequaertii , it will be a problem to obtain pictures , as the States in what they're growing in are under perpetual war since the last 20/30 years....
    My father was in Katanga 1973 , but armoured , on tanks.....no chance for a good Picture-safari....

    Sigh. I have always longed to see these plants. I have heard that there are growers cultivating Drosera elongata, but they obviously have not posted any photos. So, these plants remain as myths, sad to say. Perhaps the plants are exant in their habitat. As Patrice mentions, no one is willing to risk the dangers the political unrest of the area generates in order to go sightseeing. How frustrating!

    I notice D. meristocaulis isn't on this list, although I don't recall seeing a photo of it.....hmmm, time to check Bob's website for links!

    Tamlin,

    You are correct, I have found only a photo of D. meristocaulis from the NYBG herbarium, but no photos of living plants.

    I think I will add to my list of needed photos those that I have only herbarium photos.

    Bob ,

    I was thinking of a potential source of pictures : in Africa there are many private reservations. Iwas searching for links on the Net and I found some plant-listings , listings that include the whoole plants found on this private-reservations....

    Maybe you schould try to contact thoose private-reservations , they may have pictures on private albums , like thoose that Yahoo provide.

    Patrice,

    What a great idea!!! I never once thought of that, despite seeing those lists many times in my search for these seeds needed for my seed testa studies! Thank you for opening a new door of investigation. I will be doing some heavy research and emailing.

    I figure, if I shoot my shotgun enough times into the empty air, sooner or later a duck will fall at my feet. I go now to load the gun, and thanks for the additional ammo!
