    A weed or rotundifolia?

    Yes.

    Seriously though, it's certainly not a weedy drosera like capensis or binata. Could be rotundifolia - has the look of one about it.

    The more I view this the more it looks like Drosera capillaris to me. The first two photos aren't showing up.

    I agree with NaN on D. capillaris. IMO, it also looks like it might be D. intermedia.

    I think so too. It looks like the extremely pale capillaris I got growing under florescents...

    Nice plant, though.

    Hmmmmm, not D. rotundifolia or D. intermedia. Might be D. capillaris - are there any hairs on the underside of the leaf?

    Doesn't appear to have hairs. I had to lift up a leaf. They are all decumbent. I ruled out capillaris, spatulata, and intermedia because spatulata has a wider leaf that blends in at the trap, forminging the spoon shape. D. capillaris have a more elonganted trap that this one has. This is a circle.

    Here's what I mean:

    Here's the plant in question:



    This is D. capillaris:



    This is D. spatulata:



    And this is an old picture of now out of the collection D. intermedia and D. anglica:



    I am far from being a reliable source of ID but these leaves and traps just don't look like capillaris, spatulata, or intermedia.

    Here are D. rotundifolia seedlings that came and went a couple years ago:
