Utrics?

I recently noticed that a dome of mine has been colonized by a different plant. Is this a Utric? There's a flower stock that appeared out of the moss, but I'm guessing there's more of this at the base, but I didn't want to go poking about too much.

Yup that would be a Utricularia! Likely the weedy U. subulata which produces two types of flowers, yellows ones that are nice to look at and these which just spread seed.

So if I don't see yellow, I should cut the flower stock right away?
Thanks guys!

Mine start off as a small ball atop a stalk and only displays yellow when it blooms. My stalks also only have 1 flower at a time.
