Utricularia cornuta - Michaux
Lentibulariaceae (Bladderwort) Family
Plant is an upright, carnivorous annual without roots; stem does not have a whorl of inflated branchlets; terrestrial. Preferred habitat is wet roadsides, ditches and savannas. Distribution is throughout the Escambia region.
Leaves are virtually absent but the stem system is somewhat leaf-like.
Flowers are clusters toward the end of the stem; bisexual in nature; symmetrical in form. The calyx is 2-lobed; corolla is 2-lipped; spurred and yellow. Flowering season is in the summer.
Fruit is a capsule.
This species differs from many other bladderwort in being terrestrial rather than aquatic; although it may occasionally be submerged. The plant sucks very small organisms through the bladders (somewhat like fish gills) and the organisms are then digested.
