G'day,
Got gemmae of Lake Bagderup, Carbarup, roseana, pulchella, pygmea (SA form), nitidula ssp allostigma, nitidula x pulchella, nitidula x ericksonae for swapping. I am interested in gemmae (within Australia) otherwise seeds if you live overseas.

Hey khoas, what country do you live in? Because if you live in some other country other then the US, it'll be hard to trade Gemmae.

Khoas, you're the founder of the ACPS, right? (or something like that, think Tamlin mentioned it once...)

Cool...what work do you do there?
(growing cps all day long? What a haven...

No I am not the founder of the ACPS. The Australian Carnivorous Plants Society was formed in 1983 by group of collector ( I was only 12 at the time when the society was formed and interested in other things). I got into carnivorous plants only in 1998. Some of original members such Fred, Brian are still in the society. I am only the secertary, Seedbank manager and Books sales of the society.

That is as it should be: no one can be aware of all the customs restrictions in every country. It's up to the individual receiving the material to either make it legal or take the risk. I never even ask if someone can legally receive the material I send. It isn't the sender who is going to have problems if the package is intercepted.

Be aware that the risks are real, and significant.  Although the odds are probably against getting caught, if you are here in the US you may be looking at fines that can reach 5 figures.  In any case, do not employ outright deception if you decide to smuggle this material like calling the package "Machine parts", and do not make public reference of the illegal action.
