Jan and anyone else,
Thanks for the information. I will make the changes over the weekend. Next
time, I take pictures I will try to keep in mind to take pictures of all
floral parts.

I just uploaded (to http://members.aol.com/dionaea/ ) some more photos,
including a picture of the true U. nephrophylla. If anyone finds any
misidentifications on the URL, please let me know.

Back to D. spatulata (sp. 8 Borneo). Do people still grow this? I would very
much be interested in obtaining some seed. I would be willing to buy seed or
plants of this.
