The Bulletin of the Australian Carnivorous Plant Society was a quarterly periodical and the official publication of the Australian Carnivorous Plant Society.[1] Established in April 1982[2] as Bulletin / South Australian Carnivorous Plant Society,[3] it continued publication until 2003.[4] In a special general meeting of society members, in September 2004, it was decided the bulletin would cease publication.[4] Typical articles included matters of horticultural interest, field reports, literature reviews, and scientific studies. The headquarters was in Adelaide.[3]

Taxon names[edit]

The bulletin published a number of taxonomic changes by botanist Allen Lowrie, including the transfer of Utricularia westonii to the genus Polypompholyx and the reduction of Drosera praefolia to a subspecies of Drosera whittakeri.[5] The bulletin also originated the names Drosera henryana (a nomen nudum for the hybrid D. capensis × D. aliciae) and Sarracenia leucophylla var. pubescens (also a nomen nudum).[5]

The bulletin originated the cultivar name Nepenthes 'Fulgent Koto' and provided descriptions for the cultivars Nepenthes 'Aichi', Nepenthes 'Nagoya', Nepenthes 'Suzue Kondo', and Nepenthes 'Tokuyoshi Kondo'.[5]
