    I don't know if this qualifies for the culture section, but I don't know where else to put it. Can someone explain the difference between D. limpidium and D. dicheoides and others of that type or point me to a reference? I've looked at the archive of Peter's thread. Woods shows a picture of the flowers, but I was unable to find it in the text (and I was unable to find an index except to the pictures, Mr. Bill indeed!). Lavarack et al don't list it, nor does Baker. Thanks.

    That is what my Den. limpidum looks like, so I will go for that too. Thanks.

    I'll leave a speculation to you, Jon. Or maybe Dale could make suggestions.

    It may be time to start thinking of clonal names, 'CIA', 'Tribal Warlords' come to mind.
