    Talking How well do you know your view of carnivorous plants?

    Try to name each one of the drawn plants! Don't go too far(for example: Sarracenia Purpurea), just write species names(for example:Sarracenia) Have Fun!
    Sorry for sideways pics

    Genus, not species. Species names use binomial nomenclature consisting of the genus and the specific epithet. Example Sarracenia flava - genus: Sarracenia, specific epithet: flava.

    Just saying flava is not sufficient as there are many plants using flava as the epithet, e.g. Aesculus flava, Limnocharis flava or Lonicera flava. That's why the convention is to use the binomial when writing about species although the genus can be abbreviated with the first letter if the genus had been completely spelled out previously. However since there genus beginning with L previously discussed the entire genus must be spelled out (in the context of this message) to avoid confusion.

    Sarracenia Oreophyla (spelled correctly?)
    Various Drosera (capensis, a tuberous, etc)
    Catopsis
    Heliamphora
    Pinguicula Moranensis (three varieties)
    Utricularia Longifolia
    Nepenthes
    Cephalotus
    Venus Fly Trap
    Drosophyllum
    Byblis


    Most of these pictures came from Savage Garden, Carnivorous Plants of The World, and mainstream pictures.

    Sarracenia flava
    Drosera species
    Brocchinia
    Heliamphora
    Pinguicula species
    Utricularia species
    Nepenthes
    Cephalotus
    Dionaea
    Drosphyllum
    Byblis

    Oh, and Wolfn, the proper spelling of that species is Sarracenia oreophila.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Thanks Not A Number!
    Great job Wulfn and hcarlton. For #3, I originally went for a brocchinia, but catopsis is acceptable too due to the same leaf structure
