    Well if it is not the monanthos form with single flowers and very short scapes. Then it is simply U. dichotoma

    With respect to the monanthos form. Some people say they ALL should be labelled simply as U. dichotoma. I disagree with them and agree with Sean that a distinction should be maintained. Personally I feel U. dichotoma ssp. monanthos is sufficient.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I list mine as Utricularia dichotoma "Monathos", and feel that is sufficient. Between Peter Taylor's and Sean's opinions it would be a little silly to think otherwise.

    My U. dichotoma survive occasional winter freezes just fine.

    When I update my grow list, I will call it just that. Thanks.

    The article that adresses U. monanthos (as well as U. novae-zealandia) as synonyms for U. dichotoma is this:

    http://www.rsnz.org/publish/nzjb/1999/25.php

    I have read the full article and it seems convincing enough.

    That being said, the specimen of U. monanthos that I used to have is completely different that a standard U. dichotoma. There is a picture on my website (www.islandnet.com/~tmalcolm) that shows a whole plant. You can see by the realtive size of the leaves in the picture that it is really small.

    Lowrie lists hollow petioles as a distinctive feature of U. monanthos. Another interesting feature is the length of the leaves. They usually came right from the very bottom of the pot. A bit of a challenge when trying to carve out section to send to someone.

    However, Reut and Fineran say that U monanthos is just a small specimen of the highly variable species U dichotoma.

    Thank Tim. I just checked your website - again - and I'm pretty confident that I just have a plain old dichotoma. This morning I checked it out and the flower stalk is ~9" and I can see the emergence of a flower, which will presumably open up tomorrow.
