Common name: Babu Bladderwort • Marathi: Babu Jathari

Utricularia babui is a perennial carnivorous plant that belongs to the genus Utricularia.

It is native to India and had only been collected from the Kolhapur district at the time of its description in 2005.
U. babui grows as a terrestrial plant in and near small streams in open forests at altitudes from 700 m (2,297 ft) to 900 m (2,953 ft). Specimens of U. babui were previously mistaken for U. graminifolia.
It was originally described and published by Shrirang Ramchandra Yadav, M. M. Sardesai, and S. P. Gaikwad in 2005.[1]
A study of the Utricularia of Thailand published in 2010 found U. babui in Chiang Mai Province, northern Thailand. The authors found the plants at an altitude of 1,650 m (5,413 ft) on wet rock faces among mosses.[2]

Found a specimen of Utricularia Babui in Pachmarhi, Madhya Pradesh at Apsara Vihar. 
The specimen was on a slope, with a flowing stream which seemed to have rooted itself in place within a slight crack. The stem was pinkish in colour with blue flowers with darker veins on its lower lip. 
Found it at multiple locations on the same stream. 
This is my first post, so not sure if the formatting is right let me know, and happy to fix that. Unfortunately I have only one picture of it.
