Sir, 

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. ?
Habit & Habitat : aquatic herb in a pond
Date : 16/10/12, 10.30 a.m.
Place : Garalgacha (Hooghly)
Links visited :-

Thank you & Regards,

surajit

Hi,
 This looks like Ceratophyllum submersum to me. Please check.
                     With regards,

Good morning Neil Sir,

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.

Regards,

surajit
