Drosophyllum lusitanicum
I known it’s crazy how fast they open and close! I had one already close but was lucky enough to catch these 2. They look different from yours…I wonder if they are a variant??? Or simply only one type can exist for Drosophyllum lusitanicum. Your flower is more colorful and have a nice yellow, mine look like the color was wash out lolllll

Yes, mine looks a really nice deep yellow.

If I remember well, a few years ago I bought some seeds from a Swiss guy from Chaux-de-fonds and he sent me Droso from different locations. I think it is the Los Barrios one but I'm really not sure (it should have a red seed capsule but doesn't ; but the glands don't have enough light to turn red so ...). I didn't have good result in the past so last year I throw all my remaining seeds in one pot.

You can see some information about Droso location here :
