Snap-tentacles & microscope

Drosera glanduligera Der Sonnentau mit „Klapp-Tentakeln"

Hartmeyer, I. & Hartmeyer, S. (2005) DAS TAUBLATT (GFP) 2005/2: 34-38

English Summary:

The authors describe the growing conditions of D. glanduligera and a comparison of its elongated tentacles with those of D. burmannii and D. sessilifolia. Using a USB-microscope a unique structure of D. glanduligera becomes visible, which enables this Sundew to snap-trap minute prey within parts of a second. So Dionaea and Aldrovanda are not longer the only carnivores using snap-traps.
