Monographs Details: Utricularia laxa A.St.-Hil. & Girard
Authority: Maguire, Bassett. 1967. The botany of the Guayana Highland--Part VII. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 17: 1-439.
Family:Lentibulariaceae
Description:Distribution and Ecology - Swamp savannas at low altitudes, Paraguay, Brazil and Colombia. The occurrence of this essentially southern species in Colombia is surprising but I have seen one of the specimens cited by Fernandez-Perez and it is certainly the same as the Santa Catarina plant. Steyermark (Fieldiana Bot. 28: 1095. 1957) records this species for Venezuela but the specimen is U chiribiquitensis Fernandez-Perez.
