    Am I missing something here? The final photo is a D. filiformis. Are the flowers from the same plant? Interesting none-the-less.

    Sean, look at the first photo. 8 petals! I have seen hexamerous Drosera flowers at times, but very few octamerous ones! The styles and anthers are also double. I am willing to bet the cells are all enlarged, and the stoma guard cells larger than typical. It sure looks like a polyploid to my eye if ever I saw one.

    The filiformis is normal, LOL.
