I have a hub that recently took off due to a few organic backlinks which saw it get nearly 1000 hits in one day. Previously it was getting about 50 hits a day however now it's averaging 150-170 per day.
However when I check the breakdown (from google, bing, referral sites etc) I see only about 50 total sources. I know some sources aren't shown but I'm just wondering:
►In your experience, where is traffic generally coming from if the source isn't listed?
(Google analytics is a bit confusing on this too atm)
I don't know about Bing, but Google doesn't typically show you all their backlinking sources because they don't want people reverse engineering their site.
You may want to check Yahoo Site Explorer instead and see how many links you get. They do a better job showing you links.

IF I get traffic from Tumblr - will the domain Tumblr be listed on my traffic sources? Or will it simply say Google?

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more!...

I would love to see a citation feature that would build a source list for us much like you see on wikipedia. I want to be able to drop a source in as I write and have a bibliography and footnote notation...
