I just found an interesting article on Drosophyllum in the Botanical Journal
of the Linnean Society (1995), 118:331-351

"Floral and reproductive biology of _Drosophyllum lusitanicum_ (L.)
Link (Droseraceae)" by A. Ortega Olivencia, J.P. Jarasco Claver and
J.A. Devesa Alcaraz.

They did some research on the flowering and fructification phenology, pollen
and ovule production, pollen germination, stigma receptivity etc.
As far as I read they didn't find many new things, as you may know,
Drosophyllum is self-pollinating and in this research they confirmed that it
has a very low percentage of cross-hybridisation.
If you want to know more: just send me a mail.
