    Found this new wild site, in Southern California

    While exploring a new canyon on the Palos Verdes Peninsula I was astonished to see this site: Butterworts and sphagnum moss growing on a seeping rock face! However, the butterworts were not the species native to California found further north. They look more like some species of Mexican Pinguicula.

    The photo opens up really small so it's hard to make out a whole lot of detail, but if there are supposed to be butterworts in the image I'm not identifying anything that looks like one.
    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.

    Good eyes guys, they are not actually butterworts. Nor is that sphagnum moss. Iíve been fooled a few times here, at first glance. No dew and no captured bugs. The plant is Dudleya lanceolata. Thanks for your replies.
