New species of utricularia?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I want to utilise the expertise that some people on cpukforum have of Utricularia species. In 2010 I came across a species of bladderwort in Tanzania in the rainforest. I do possess some taxonomical expertise myself, but not in plants. Yet I haven't seen any species so far that resembles the exact phenotypic layout of this specimen. So I was hoping that someone on this forum could enlighten me. Did I come across a new species?

Also I should mention that this species was growing in a thin water film on a rock so it's actually part aquatic and part terrestrial.

Here is a photograph of the specimen:


I have some more photographs that I need to dig up, but if anyone could already shed some light on the matter that would be great!
