Drosera anglica in Alaska
Carniv. Pl. Newslett. 42(1):30-31
Published March 2013
Little has been written about carnivorous plants in Alaska. Typically the literature has been limited to brief descriptions found in flora guidebooks (Pratt 1991, 1993; Schaffer 2000), or a brief description of species and range (Hulten 1968; Schnell 2002). There are two sundews native to Alaska, Drosera rotundifolia and D. anglica. D. rotundifolia has been recorded from all across Alaska, while the literature on the distribution of D. anglica hasn’t been quite as clearly defined. Schnell’s (2002) range map shows a narrow distribution of D. anglica in Alaska limited to Kodiak Island in Southcentral Alaska. It is shown in neighboring British Columbia, so it is conceivable that it could be in Southeast Alaska as well. Hulten (1968) showed a greater distribution of locations across the state.
