Paulo Minatel Posted December 19, 2012 Report Share Posted December 19, 2012 Hi there, A new article on Brazilian Drosera taxonomy just got published: Gonella, P.M., Rivadavia, F. & Sano, P.T. (2012) Re-establishment of Drosera spiralis (Droseraceae), and a new circumscription of D. graminifolia. Phytotaxa 75: 43-57. http://www.mapress.c...p00075p057f.pdf Here the abstract of the paper: "Drosera graminifolia and D. spiralis have long been considered conspecific, but new morphological and ecological data support the recognition of these taxa as distinct species. Both species are here described and illustrated, including observations on ecology, habitat, and conservation status, together with a distribution map, line drawings, photographs, and a table containing the distinctive characters." Here are the answers for those who ever asked themselves about the differences between Drosera graminifolia and D. spiralis (as you can see in the article, there are many)! Here you can see a brief illustrated guide, showing the main differences between both species: https://www.facebook...70251137&type=1 And here, one of the figures of the article, illustrating Drosera graminifolia: In case you want the pdf of the article, just PM me sending your email address!
