    Those are eyes. Haven't you seen drawings of ETs? Why do you think they are called Venus Flytraps

    You are correct, I was just messing with ya. Spots are probably from damage of some sort, maybe bugs. If it was a hole through I'd suspect caterpillars. One munched holes through my Drosera filiformis var tracyi flower buds. No big deal if you lose one flower as you can see you have more buds.

    its not a hole, its actually a bump.
    although i dont have that many caterpillar here, but alot of leafhopper...
    and i think the leafhopper are actually the reason for my red coloration of my oreophila.

    Bumps? Do they kind of look like scabs or scales? Could be scale insects. If you can flick 'em off with your thumbnail or a knife that's what they probably are. You may or may not be able to recognize insect features on the undersides - depends on the species.

    scales are very...slug like if i were to compare them, usually anyway. slow moving, and thin scab like bugs. usually leave nice little white pots where they were at on the plant...atleast in my experiance with the little devils. i hate them....alot
