|Early summer growth of Drosera pygmaea at the Peter Murrell Reserve, near Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.|
Drosera pygmaea is a tiny, carnivorous, rosette-forming biennial or annual herb native to Australia and New Zealand. The specific epithet which translates as "dwarf" from Latin is a reference to the size of this plant which grows to between 8 and 18 mm in diameter.
