Dear all,
I am pleased to announce that on 9 March 2012 the main paper from my extended PhD project was published, the abstract can be found at http://www.publish.csiro.au/paper/SB11030.htm
This paper includes an assessment of the various members of the Drosera peltata complex that have been described over the last 200+ years and is based on a morphological assessment of specimens. The main outcome is the recognition of 5 species in the complex:

Drosera peltata (in the strict sense) = the reddish plants from wetlands in south eastern Australia and includes D. 'gracilis';
D. hookeri = yellow green plants with variably hairy sepals and deeply pitted seeds from south eastern Australia and New Zealand (i.e. it includes what has been considered to be D. 'foliosa' in the past);
D. auriculata;
D. lunata = is now reinstated and has a wide geographic range from southern and eastern Asia to northern and eastern Australia (reaching its southern limit around Sydney; and
D. yilgarnensis (formerly 'D. peltata Western Australian Form'') = is described as new to science and is endemic to Western Australia.

This paper represents the end point of a study project that I started over 20 years ago. I had no idea it would take this long, and so I thank you for your patience.

Kind regards,
Robert

Thanks Sertorius and Dennis P. This paper has been a long time coming, and I hope it makes a significant contribution to resolving this complex.
