    Hmmmmmm, I dunno. The first appears to be a Drosera spatulata form. If the flowers are white is likely a NZ form. Get me a shot later from the side, buds/stipules/bracts and best yet flowers and I might venture a better opinion. The second photo shows lamina that are sort of trucate - could be a South African, suggestive of D. natalensis....but these are shots in the dark so don't write up any labels just yet.

    That bottom picture doesn't look like either of those 2. The tentacles extend to close to the base of the leaves. And D. natalensis atleast the (Zimbabwe, Chimanimani Mnts) form narrows out much more at the base of the leaf.

    I'd say it looks more like D. admirabilis

    Not any D. admirabilis that I have been aquainted with, and the Zimbabwe form is very atypical for D. natalensis. Not saying it IS D. natalensis. D. dielsiana is also highly variable and I would not eliminate that possibility either. Time will tell.

    The funny thing with the South African species is that many of the forms "morph" into others as you view them in different points in their growth. I have had D. aliciae die back, and when restarting growth I'd have bet my Stetson hat it was D. dielsiana. Later in growth, it was its old self.

    Looking at the photo again, there are too many leaves for either D. natalensis or D. dielsiana. With this form, I'd probably go with Alice's Sundew, focusing on the truncate lamina.

    All is guessing games without a good floral shot or seed testa details.
