Utricularia geminiscapa, the hiddenfruit bladderwort,[1] is a perennial, medium-sized species of aquatic bladderwort. This species occurs naturally in the northeastern United States and Canada with one record from British Columbia in Western Canada. A small population is present near Westport in New Zealand where the species is thought to have recently naturalized- it was first recorded in this area in 1975.[2]
