    What sundews besides D. pauciflora, D. burmannii ,and D. scorpioides move fast, and what sundews have leaves besides D. capensis that roll over their prey?

    Two notable omissions from your list would be D. glanduligera and D. regia. D. regia probably has the most discernable motion of any cp, often tying itself in a knot about the prey, whereas D. glanduligera probably has the fastest response.

    almost all sundews roll in a ball around their prey. alilia, (I know it's spelled wrong, lol) Drosera spatulata, D. regia, D. capensis, all of the Rosetted Subtropical Sundews, and I think all of the forked drosera roll around their prey
    EDIT: Oh, and don't forget pygmies!

    I haven't witnessed that on spatulata or binata. I have seen the hairs around the prey move to it though.

    The binata do it, but just a little, and it seems as the leaves age, they stop.
