HI list :)

A friend just sent me a photocopy of a paper describing several
African Drosera, complete with line drawings and descriptions (in
French, unfortunately for me). I'd seen literature and drawings of
these plants years ago but, despite a message or 2 to the list in the
past, havent heard from anyone growing any of these plants. I doubt
anyones actually got the TRUE species listed below, but if you do,
please contact me as I am EXTREMELY interested in growing any of them:

Drosera humbertii
Drosera katangensis
Drosera bequaertii
Drosera affinis
Drosera elongata

I was also wondering if any of these species had been found to be
synonyms for other plants. All except humbertii bear a slight
resemblance to D.madagascariensis which, based on 2 types Ive got, is
somewhat variable... sp.Botswana, anybody? :)

Thoughts? Anyone? Anyone?
