    Most likely, capillaris, but the leaf shape is hard to make out in the mass.
    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.

    How did you tell Drosera capillaris from D. rotundifolia--is it pure locality information?

    D. rotundifolia does not occur in Florida(not by any official records at least), and it honestly looks nothing like capillaris; far broader lamina, narrower petioles, often hairier, etc.
