    That looks like a Drosera indica complex species to me, possibly Drosera finlaysoniana.

    Agreed. And D. finlaysoniana is the most commonly distributed species, so that's likely it.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    It is definitely a Drosera indica, I would agree with finlaysoniana on the basis that it and Serpens are the most commonly grown, however serpens has a petiole (which your plant does not), so is ruled out.

    Though until it gets older it can be hard to correctly ID this complex as their are so many now (11 in Australia alone, with a few such as aquatica also lacking a petiole), however if you stick with finlaysoniana I doubt anyone would argue.

    If you really want an ID you will have to wait till it is older and check the trichomes

    My guess is D. indica.

    Here are a couple photos that may be helpful for ID as your plant matures, the first is D. indica and the second is Byblis:

    The plant is 100% an Indica complex, it is just about which.
