Look online at pics of the various capillaris varieties out there. Some look almost like burmannii in how compact they are, others look like they could be a variety of capensis with shorter paddles.
Environmental influences over millions of years will cause changes. Since NC is different than Florida or Brazil, practically everything about the plant has a chance to be different, even the seeds.
That's not to say that what you have is definitively from boiling Springs, NC, but maybe it's like comparing blood oranges to mandarins. They're both oranges, but the big ones with a red to purple pulp looks quite different from a small one with the classic orange pulp.
Sometimes mistakes are made, but you likely have capillaris that evolved differently than others.
Especially CP, with very restrictive taxa and few species. There are very big problems in the Pygmy Sundew clade with species that look very distinctive across species, and some look very similar and are thought to be monoclonal in origin. From what research I have done, CP are very opportunistic plants, and react very quickly to their environment to colonize areas with few plants. Thus, they evolve quickly and you see all of these forms and species.
Edited to say, you could email Bob Ziemer at ICPS to see if it is worthy of a cultivar and describe it. That's always an option.
