-Utricularia monanthos describes a small affixed aquatic and emergent species with tiny purple blooms roughly half a centimeter in width. The lower lip of the corolla has 2-3 yellow ridges and is slightly longer than petal spur. The upper lip of the corolla is notched and features vertical veins. The bracts and bracteoles are basifixed (attached at their base) and slightly gibbous at the base. The plants are usually found in alpine habitats across Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales in boggy meadows, creeks and seeps.
-Utricularia dichotoma complex, consisting of several taxa which have purple flowers and yellow flowers with somewhat similar morphology, has long been the subject of review. Taxa within this complex, including Utricularia monanthos, are constantly being shifted from species to subspecies status as new data and new interpretations of data are applied.
