Carnivorous plant identification

HanozJuly 26, 2014

Hello there. Can someone identify these two carnivorous plants please? I came across them on a hike today. They look carnivorous, so I'm assuming they are. This is in Mundaring, Western Australia. Copy & paste the links below. Thanks.

Were these in WA?

The first looks like possibly Drosera erythrorhiza, while the second might be Drosera menziesii.

Good luck.

Thanks, missing. I missed that - I should have your handle :-)
That answers my query, as WA is Western Australia (not your WA, Washington state)
Western Australia has a host of Drosera spp. In fact, I believe they have more species than anywhere else in the world.

Here is a link that might be useful: Check out Drosera
