    I think thath the petiole is a little wide for the 'Creeping Death' VFT, although it is obviously a similar mutation. Possibly a CD VFT grown in low light.

    I doubt the 'Creeping Death' flytrap has found its way into the UK yet. Looks like some old flytraps grown with high humidity and lower lighting.

    It doesn't look like a mutation to me. This just looks like normal summer leaf growth. If you look down at the bottom of the plant there are some wide spring leaves, and from the plants around this is obviously Midsummer. Not all flytraps produce these upright summer leaves but most of my plants do. This looks like a very vigorous plant though!
