This is a tiny leaf of Drosera (sundew) in the palm of my hand. Sundew is a carnivorous plant. It isn't very rare but it's so small that it's overlooked easily.

There are 9 Darter species in The Netherlands, a few of them quite rare. They occur July-October.

Most common is the Common Darter. Pics show a male and a female.

Then, almost as common as the Common Darter, and of like appearance except for the moustache, the Moustached Darter.

The third place is for the Ruddy Darter. It would seem Darters like barbed wire.
