I was able to harvest some Utricularia arenaria seed. Below is a picture of the seed. Notice the triangular shape. Since this is a 2 dimensional picture, I am not sure what the actual shape of the seed would be. Perhaps someone with more experience would answer.

Arenaria grows very slowly for me, but is also densely packed in growth habit for a Utric. It has a very pretty, distinctive flower, but too small for me to photograph.

Wish me luck with the germination trials. While all of this seed is promised, hopefully I will be able to send some to the seed bank in the near future.

Speaking from the seed bank management point of view, I say send them. At least a dozen seeds or so, to give others an opportunity to grow them.
I may test germinate a few seeds if enough are donated, after I research them to be confident in a good faith attempt. But to give others an opportunity would be pretty cool.
