The common name of this carnivorous plant - Sundew - derived from the mucilage that adorns each gland on the leaves of all plants glistening in the sunlight, reminiscent of spring sunshine on early morning dew. Although the common name seems almost delightful, this hides a morbid side to the plants, or more specifically, their prey capture method.
Drosera spatulata is known as the spoon-leaved sundew because of its wee spoon-shaped leaves. The Latin name literally translates to spatula shaped. The plant is spread through Southeast Asia, Southern Japan and China, New Guinea, Micronesia, and into eastern territories in New Zealand, Tasmania, and Australia.
