Sorry for the long hiatus in following up. Life has other ideas sometimes. ;)

But could this possible be a bud or seedpod for bladderwort (Utricularia macrorhiza, likely species) seen in this same location in a previous trip a couple years before? A picture of that is below. The size, location, and overall appearance is much the same. I'm not familiar with the species and so I'm not sure what it may look like at other stages. Thanks!

I must have missed the original post. That is Scheuchzeria palustris, aka podgrass. The plant in your most recent post looks like Utricularia cornuta
