Gibson's sundew:
This is the newly named pygmy, Drosera gibsonii! A cute little stem-forming species, it seems to have affinities to D. silvicola and perhaps D. barbigera.

It was a very small population of plants right by the road, which gives me some concern about its long-term viability. There is at least one other population known, but even that fact does not provide much comfort.
