The Carnivorous Plant FAQ v. 12

Q: The big Utricularia checklist!

A: On this page I list all the species of Utricularia. I organize this list using subgenus and section categorizations following the system proposed by Taylor (1989). The system below is slightly modified because work by Müller and Borsch (2005) showed Taylor's system of two subgenera to be paraphyletic.

In his monograph, Taylor presents the sections and species in an order that is intended to imply an evolutionary order. I do not do that---for simplicity the sections and species are listed merely in alphabetical order within their respective categories.

I will continue to try to keep this list fresh. The freshness date at the bottom of the page will tell you when I last updated it.

Page citations: Müller, K., and Borsch, T. 2005; Parnell, J.A.N. 2005; Rice, B.A. 2006a; Schlauer, J. 2002; Taylor, P. 1989; and citations given within the descriptions for each section of the genus.
