- ps you could tell a fib -a white lie maybe :D:D:D

In our Adventures so far ( if you can call them that :) )

Ive never found a place with so many peltata rosettes -Literally thousands in the white sand areas - can't wait to go back when they are in full flight -will make some fantastic photos .

This area was so rugged we decided to use our gps and plot the 4wd 's position . Luckilly we did geez it would be easy to get lost in the bottom of the gorge .

regards Belinda

As the other guys have said- not a D. burmannii. That's OK though as it gives you a good reason to keep getting out there and searching.

If you are really desperate to find D. burmannii I can find out some locations for you to visit. Just have to contact a friend who is an expert on Sydney CPs.

BTW, I love that shot of the patch of D. spatulata, beautifully dewy. This is probably the best time of the year to find such immaculate looking plants.

ICPS database says D. burmannii which would be correct latin grammar for the species. But it was described as D. burmanni and because of that its the real name. Just the same occurs with Aldrovanda which would be correctly spelled as Aldrovandia. Just waiting for Andreas Fleischmann to drop in... ;)

That's the problem with forums sometimes, very difficult to detect sarcasm and joking around. The 5 consecutive smilies should have given us a clue. :huh:
