    Dionaea muscipula is a fairly variable species, even if it is a monotypic one. There is a lot of variation in trap size, orientation, the teeth number, color, length. Variation as well in the outer color of the traps, in the nectary band on the outside. Variation in the width of the petiole and its orientation. Variation in the color of the inner trap. VAriation in the teeth.... Add to this the fact that older traps are larger, and seasonal variation effects. Factor in mutant forms: fused tooth, cup trap, dentate traps, saw tooth cilia, and the mutants from TC and you will begin to see there are many possibilities!

    Some growers feel these variations are worthy of distinction and have appended names: Giant traps, Blood red, etc. to set them apart from the "typical", but unless they are published in accordance with the ICBN Cultivar Registration regulations, they are not "legitimate". Such appended names are considered "Bogus" because without publication of a standard, there is no way for anyone to tell what is really being referred to. To find out which are legitimate names go here:

    http://www.omnisterra.com/bot/cp_home.cgi

    In the search window type Dionaea muscipula and scroll down the entries.

    To see some of the various forms go here:

    Click on the Dionaea mucipula header and off you go.

    Bogus names may sound nice, and indeed may refer to a desirable variation, but to be legitimate it must be published and meet the ICBN (International Congress of Botanical Nomenclature) regulations. More on this here:
