I've seen it for about half this price from (you guessed it ;-)) Collector's
Corner at Gardenworld (just down the road from DH&G...)

Without trying to put down Ohlenrott's work, I don't think it's anywhere
near as good, or comprehensive, as Jan's list. It is basically as the
title indicates - a list of names. There are no references for the
particular names.

Ohlenrott is part of the Victorian Carnivorous Plant Society, from what
the "book" says. The "book" is basically a ringbound (with platic cover(s))
booklet of 2-sided photocopies.

I don't think it's worth buying (especially at AUS$15), if you can print a
copy of Jan's list...
