Utricularia cornuta

Description: Small to medium-sized terrestrial Utricularia. Leaves are thin and thread-like, carpeting the surface of the soil. The spur faces downwards. Racemes are short, with flowers clustered together near the top.

Note: can be differentiated from the nearly identical U. juncea due to it’s larger flower size, as well as have flowers bunched rather than spread out. U. cornuta also lacks cleistogamous flowers, which are very often present on U. juncea.

Ecology: Found in flooded, wet peaty areas in seepage bogs, and on the edges of shallow ponds.
