I was checking out the sundew section of Bob Z's photo finder and found a ton of species that I've never even heard of, particularly south american species. Here are some of the better ones I found.
Drosera arenicola, from South Venezuela.

Drosera camporupestris from SE brazil. Love the look of this species, unfortunately they don't seem to be available in the US...

Drosera cendeensis from Venezuela. Anyone know if this is in cultivation? Those long leaf bases are amazing!

I bet there are tons more too... I only got to the P's. I'd be interested to know more about these species such as growing conditions, etc. if anyone grows them.

I've seen pics of hugelii before. I love that one.

The hartmeyerorum is pretty amazing

wow, that's beautiful! I missed that one, I think I clicked one of the links and it took too long so I got impatient. That flower bud is huuuuuge.

Armed with an Aphis small seeds permit & some nice seeds worth trading, there are a number of folks in South America who are eager to trade. I suspect there are also some folks across the pond who are growing some of these plants ... & possibly a few hiding here in the states...???

1st step is to get some seeds of stuff they want..... :hail:

I have platypoda and subhirtella. I think I have browniana too, may have lost that one though can not recall... Had graniticola but lost it and am bummed about it. Still waiting on erythrogyne to germinate (won't give up for at least 5 years LOL)

Typical tuberous growth. If you know what you are doing with that group then you should do fine with them. If not, cut your teeth on some of the species other than petlata and get comfortable :)

Drosera cendeensis looks like a nidiformis on steroids. Very exquisite... I like big sun dews.

yeah, I think I'd have to say cendeensis is my favorite. Its leaves remind me of squid tentacles reaching out to grab a passing fish.
