Utricularia juncea

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 elongated, with the flowers spaced throughout. Cleistogamous flowers are also often present.

Note: can be differentiated from the nearly identical U. cornuta due to its smaller flower size, as well as having flowers spread out rather than bunched near the top. U. juncea also has cleistogamous flowers, which are much smaller than the chasmogamous flowers.

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