ok this might sound a bit stupid, but iv seen a few posts and on websites and in shops, a drosera spathulata.
now is this the same as a spatulata?
is it a spelling mistake?
is it a regional thing?

mmmmmm.......... spelling mistake, some people call this drosera Spathulata other people Spatulata, but in the scencial is the same thing :D

PD:this happend with all the plants called Spathulata like the Nep. Spatulata.

the correct is Spatulata (this is the official name of the ICPS)
