Another of my wanderings around

Recommended Posts

These are photos of Utrics I took a few months ago but haven't had time to upload. They were all in an area of about 50 metres radius, not too bad for that number of species being so close together. They were in a seepage area of shallow sandy soil overlaying sheet sandstone and a creek nearby it all drained into.

First is U. arnhemica, growing on the edge of a creek which the seepage drained into.

There were also more back in the seepage area away from the creek.

Further back from the creek and standing in water, not sure on the ID. A bit like limosa, but different. It varied in colour from a very pale (almost white) blue to a deeper blue. Unfortunately my camera isn't the best with colour (bit of imagination needed here).

Looks like U. limosa to me.

I'd say U. subulata, was in shallow water but in a pool along side of the creek rather than in a seepage.

U. kamienskii, back in the seepage area away from the creek.

They're all lovely.

I think that the lemon yellow U. involvens is possibly my favourite but as I said, they're all beautiful.

Thanks for sharing those pictures.

Cheers,

Steve

Thanks for all the comments. From memory the kamienskii would have been 2 or more cms (less than 2.5) from tip of spur to tip of lower lip. Photos were taken in the height of the wet season. Revisited the place the other day and the surface water in the seepages is gone.

Most of the Utrics in the seepages had gone but have been replaced with U. chrysantha (pure yellow form).

Nearer the creek is now dominated by bifida, but a lot of that has seeded.

Another one showing itself with lower water levels is fulva, although a paler form than what I'm used to.

Also near the creek the arnhemica is still going strong

There were also some other CPs.
A large Drosera indica

Drosera burmanii

cp_i_140419_31.jpg

Drosera dilitatopeliolaris (?) on its last legs.

cp_i_140419_07.jpg

Stylidium sp., don't know which one.

And some other interesting ones. Burmannia species

Then some of what I first thought might have been Stylidiums, but closer look I don't think so. Maybe some sort of Goodenia.
