Should this page maybe be moved to Drosera anglica?

A quote from Schnell, Donald (1999). "Drosera anglica Huds. vs. Drosera x anglica: What is the Difference?". Carnivorous Plant Newsletter 28: 107-115. :

There has been some nomenclatural confusion in the past with D. longifolia being used at times either synonymously or in precedence. The latter has been recently resurrected in one flora and Cheek (1998) has applied for rejection of D. longifolia altogether (see the cited paper for a detailed history and reasons for suggested rejection).

Cheek, M. 1998, Proposal to Reject the Name Drosera longifolia (Droseraceae), Taxon 47:749-750.

I have rarely heard D. longifolia used... at least here in the US the overwhelmingly preferred name is D. anglica. --NoahElhardt 00:00, 23 April 2006 (UTC)
