Dear Paul,

I know, that Jan has good maps and some more detailed information about
all the Ping's of Cuba, he will be in again next week, so you can ask him.
A botanist of E-Germany has visited the location of P. lignicola, but I
have forgot her name; I want to look, if I will find it.
In the Andes of Venezuela, Drosera cendeensis would be very interesting;
as I know, the only known location of it is 'near Cende'; at the maps, it
doesn't look to difficult to reach it. The original material of it
'disappeared'. Maybe I can also find locations of P. elongata in
Venezuela, I want to have a look.
Do you know the book of Vareschi: Tropenoekologie? It is in German
language, I don't know, if there exist an English translation, but you
can learn a lot about the vegetation of Venezuela (he lived about 40
years there.)

Have a good time there
