Macau Utricularia Identification

Recommended Posts

Could anyone help with this Utricularia from Macau? It's growing in a seep that runs over granitic-looking rocks near the beach on Coloane island. Drosera spatulata and Nepenthes mirabilis are also present.

Terrible image, I know. Apologies to anyone with easily offended visual sensitivities...

Hard crops of the first two images (I didn't have the extension tubes with me):

Thanks guys. It's really tiny compared to the U. bifida I've seen before; is that an early season thing or is the general size of the species that variable?

The size of the flowers vary greatly in all Utricularia species (up to double size)- often within one form and sometimes even within a single clone.
