Return to the Trip Overview

Bladders close up:
I feel compelled to show a closer view of the bladders. Look how long those trap appendages are!

Oh, this reminds me. The internal bladder quadrifid glands of Utricularia geminiscapa are quite different from those of Utricularia macrorhiza. So if all else fails, this character can be used to differentiate the two species.

This photograph was also taken with my light sources filtered by the black water they live in. The water is very brown because of the tannins in the water. It is just like tea!
