Abstract

The leaves of Roridula dentata L. and Roridula gorgonias Planch., two South African plant species, bear numerous glandular hairs, with droplets of sticky liquid at their tips. The plants’ habitus thus largely resembles that of many Drosera species, and also Drosophyllum lusitanicum (L.) Link (Droseraceae)1. The resemblance is further indicated by the fact that Roridula plants trap insects very successfully.
