    Action: changed name from "Sarracenia purpurea" to "Sarracenia minor "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "Species misidentified. S. minor is the only species with a downward facing hood over its opening as shown in the picture. S. psittacina also has a downward facing hood, but is quite different looking. S. purpurea has a cup opening that faces upwards. The hood of all other species does not conceal the cup opening like the specimen in the picture.
