As per efi thread:
As per “Bengal Plants” –
ID of Utricularia species!: Utricularia snaps from 1-4 are different species with floaters whereas Utricularia snaps from 5 to 7 are without floaters and smaller with yellow flowers!
Please check the following species
1-4 Utricularia aurea
4-7 utricularia exoleta
Would you please let me where you took these pictures from?
It had floaters followed with flowers which were above the surface of water. 1-4 Utricularia spp. Unfortunately these variety of plants aren’t existing anymore. Those photographs were taken four years back in one of the lakes of Bangalore!
I have never heard of Utricularia having floaters??
I think … was referring the Bladders as floaters.
No there are white things attached with the stem below flower twigs if you see.
But I think these floats are a part of many species of Utricularia, to make inflorescence to remain emerged.
Thank you sir for the clarification.

This one as well as the one in https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/wKD-jNgxqr8/ygCLfBKYXXcJ is Utricularia stellaris L.f.
As per “Bengal Plants” –
Utricularia stellaris L.f. from Hooghly:
The book “Plant Groups” mentions two common floating herbs, Utricularia stellaris L. and Utricularia flexuosa Vahl. Failed to find much info on these two species. A post tells me that this plant might be the U. stellaris – https://groups.google.com/d/topic/indiantreepix/-g_Nhjwqf5k/discussion.
Species : Utricularia stellaris L.f. ?

This looks like Ceratophyllum submersum to me. Please check.
Thank you for the probable ID.
I was confused yesterday when i tried to ID this pant. Internet gave me images of Utricularia aurea Lour. (syn. U. flexuosa Vahl.) that looked very similar – http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Utricularia_aurea and http://www.kinmatsu.idv.tw/plant/Asteridae/Utricularia.aurea.jpg/
Now, Ceratophyllum submersum L. also looks similar.
I am not sure of which species i should go for.
Utricularia stellaris as per another thread.
