20110820 Drosera spp from Parambikulam Tiger Reserve: These Drosera spp were noticed on the way to Karian shola in Parambikulam Tiger Reserve on 20.08.2011. Requesting id.
Drosera indica L.of Droseraceae family. May be this flower close up would be helpful for more details.

Since, it was found in western ghat I was thinking it could be D. peltata.
your id and flora -Lvs linear, petal rose, Styles 2-fid to the base confirmed it as D. indica.
And attaching two more close up photos of the same plant.

Drosera indica:  Drosera indica
Today at Kanakeshwar,Alibag

This is a very nice picture of Drosera indica
Very rarely I have sen people capturing the plant in flowering state.

wikipedia says its an insectivorous plant... i am bewildered...
i dont see how this innocent plant eats insects... i dont see a vessel for the insect to fall in, be trapped in or a closure valve etc... so how would it devour a highly motile thing like an insect?

Oh, I would love to!!! I have never been to Orissa for orchid survey, except on the borders, in Saranda where I walked across the border in the extreme naxallite zone. Was scared of naxallite and elephants both..... but survived and came back.

KAS Week:DS_011012_01 Drosera indica:  After returning from Valley of Flowers in August I had to stay in Mumbai till now. And because of that i got a chance to visit the famous KAS plateau in Maharastra on Sept 22nd.
This is completely different from VOF, both in habitat and flower varieties. The flowers I got are mostly new to me also. Here is the famous insectivorous plant Drosera, though at the time of our visit flowers were not there. May be a week later it will appear.

Flowers were appearing ..but perhaps we were not on right time....even I also missed the flower in my 4 outings
Few years back I had seen this plant flowering in October. Will share the photographs shortly.
I think Drosera burmanni is also reported from Kas.
Nice one ... Other than Kas where these plants are found?
Yes ...,  Drosera burmannii is also reported from Kaas. But at the location where it was observed till last year has gone under fencing and hence no sighting of that species this year :(
i had seen Drosera indica at many places other than Kas. Khandala- Dukes nose region, Bhimashankar, other similar plateau in Satara region etc.
seems nothing is growing within inches of this plant. can botanists tell me why?
These insectivorous plants grow only on sandy ground depleted with nutrients. The usual plants do not grow along with them. This makes these insect eating plants (their sparkling droplets) stand out for attracting the insect prey. ..and though not in this case, but photographers sometimes clean up the surroundings to make their images stand out.
