More Western Australia Drosera

Recommended Posts

Got these pictures from a friend in Perth Western Australia. Not sure what the drosera are though.

First 2 are of the area where the plants were found.

Nice photos,

First plant is either Drosera macrantha ssp. macrantha or D. pallida.

Second is a form of Drosera erythrorhiza, possibly ssp. magna. It's hard to tell as D. erythrorhiza plants go quite red at the end of the growing season when in good light. This makes the subspecies difficult to tell apart.

Third is Drosera menziesii ssp. menziesii or a pink flowered form of D. macrantha ssp. macrantha in flower. Possibly not a strong enough pink to be a menziesii.

Fourth is....I have no idea what the fourth one is....looks just like moss to me!!

And the final one is D. menziesii ssp. menziesii or D. macrantha ssp. macrantha again.

Thanks for giving us a look at these shots Andy.

I'm looking really hard but can't see anything. Beginning to get a headache. I'm pretty sure there is nothing there. Anybody out there with better eyes than me??

Oh well... It's a nice clump of moss!

There is a red patch bottom left of the frame... It might be a sundew! :)
