    Taylor certainly makes comment in his monograph about the difficulty telling U. alpina from small U. longifolia. If it has tubers though it shouldn't be U. longifolia. So if it does indeed have tubers which should be hard to confuse with underground stolons from U. longifolia.. What the _- is it?? lol

    Copper I don't think you need to go trying to replace plants or anything. Utricularia are perplexing at times. I think everyone understands that. Will be really interesting to see what it looks like when it flowers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    My guess is that it will look like U. longifolia.

    Here are some tubers of U. alpina:



    I agree with Tony, no need to sweat it if it turns out to be U. longifolia. Mistakes in ID are part of life, and if I know you Copper, the price was right!

    Here is a blurry pic of some alpina that I received from Copper. I will try and take a clear pic tomorrow when I have better lighting.

    Ah, there is the third one. I know mistakes happen, but these three were part of a trade. Besides I like to share. At least I have an important lesson learned. I will always warn the receivers that a plant has not flowered and not positively ID'd (or be patient). Thank you Swords, they have it.

    Copper,

    I received some U. "alpina" from you as well. I thought they looked similar to the U. longifolia that were growing in the adjacent pot. Since I didn't have the U. longifolia that long, and the U. "alpina" were still acclimating, I didn't mention the similarities.

    Tamlin,

    The link to your U. alpina tubers is incorrect. It should be

    Yes, no one needs ever be embarassed about making ID errors, or mentioning them when they are noticed. This is a cuurtesy that we grant to each other, and all part of being a good CPer. It's what makes Forums like this so valuable: we can keep things straight with some good communication.
