    ID Needed for Carnivorous Plant

    Some sort of Dionaea cultivar? Maybe a hybrid?
    What do you think?

    It looks like a cross between a Dionaea trap and a trap of Drosera huegelli, with its round shape. I have read somewhere that the bell-shaped trap is meant to prevent the prey from being taken away through the tentacles pushing prey to the center, and that this was taken a step further with the snap-trap, so perhaps this is an intermediate form between the two.

    Looks like a Dionaea trap at the top of a Genlisea trap, with Drosera tentacles in the middle.
