Utricularia multifida

Utricularia multifida

 

Bladderworts like this are carnivorous, with suction operated traps on their roots, like little bubbles that vacuum up nearby critters and trap them inside where they are digested.

Photographed in the Yule Brook (Alison Baird) Botanical Reserve in Kenwick.
