Rare carnivorous plant rediscovered on Texel

Utricularia australis

Wildlife ranger Erik van der Spek today wrote on his blog that a rare carnivorous plant has been discovered on Texel island.

Wildlife rangers found the bladderwort species Utricularia australis in the Hors area of Texel.

It is a bit difficult, but possible, to distinguish this species from other, related, bladderwort species.

Utricularia australis used to grow on Texel, but it disappeared. So, now it is back.
