Yellow Butterwort

I have been at Chassahowitzka WMA for years. Three years posting my observations on iNaturalist and I don’t recall ever seeing this plant.

The yellow butterwort is listed as a threatened species in the Preservation of Native Flora of Florida Act.

So, this is just a little confusing, no let me say this is confusing about the shapes of these two yellow butterworts.

Hopefully, I am able to get clarification on why the petals have different shapes.
