Abstract

Hybrids of Utricularia nelumbifolia × U. reniformis (and vice versa) were raised, and the bladders of adult individuals taken out of the soil were observed. With their long antennae they resemble their parents, yet they differ noticeably from the identically situated bladders of U. cornigera that has characteristic short antennae. Therefore, the morphology of the bladders does not support the hypothesis of a hybrid origin of U. cornigera.

Keywords: Utricularia cornigera, bladderwort, hybrids, bladders, traps
