I already requested you to kindly check it with Utricularia graminifolia.

Thanks, …, for the Id. I think it matches with Utricularia graminifolia

I think this appears more closer to images at Utricularia praeterita P.Taylor 

This was sent by … for identification. I haven’t seen this before. Is it U. smithiana?

This looks like U.uliginosa
You now we need to check other characters under microscope.

Pl. send detailed images.

Utricularia species.

From the first look it appears Utricularia uliginosa!
We need other details to confirm! If specimen is there it will be great as the key characters are micromorphological!
