    Drosera burmanni (Vahl) D. burmanni and D. sessilifolia are often confused, especially since hybrids of the two are common in cultivation. D.burmanni: leaves yellow-green, more triangular, flowers white, flower scape often with a curve at the base. D.sessilifolia: leaves orangish-yellow, more rounded, flowers pink, flower scape erect.
    ^^^^^ from BobZ's photo finder. it is spelled with only one "i". i took some pictures of my D. burmanni today.
    the leaf:

    the flowerpinker in real life. its also pink around the edges..)

    the flower stalk. dosent come straight up like D. sessilifolia and does curve at the base.
