Stevenson's Lake Peat Bog, Chibougamau, Québec, Canada

Recommended Posts

Here some pics of the peat bog where I worked as a biology technician for summer. We've also built the structure that you saw in the last pics. Now I know how to use a hammer :)

It does look good. Even the smallest amount of visitors to a bog region seem to cause much damage without raised platforms.....very nice.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful habitat photographs!

Looking at the thin leaf branches and the general appearance of the plant, I think your "Utricualria intermedia" is rather U. stygia (i.e. U. ochroleuca s.l.). Are there 2 traps visible on the floating stolons of the plant in the first photo? Then it's certainly U. stygia. ;)

The unknown Utricularia might either be a rather large specimen of U. minor, or a small U. macrorhiza. If you had a close-up of either a single leaf segment or the forming turion that is visible near your wristle in the photograph, I could probably identify the species. In case you were interested at all... ;)

All the best,

Andreas
