The Carnivorous Plant FAQ v. 12

Q: The big Drosera checklist!

A: On this page I list all the species of Drosera. I organize this list using subgenus and section categorizations. For these categorizations, I use the system used by Lowrie et al. (2017), as modified by Fleischmann, Gonella, & Rivadavia (2018). Each species is hyperlinked to the FAQ taxonomy page on which I discuss the plant in most detail. You'll also notice that I've included the authority for each entity, as well.

Note that in Fleischmann et al. (2018b), the subgeneric and sectional ranks are treated slightly differently. This method is shown immediately below, and is followed by the expanded list using the version described in the preceding paragraph.

The preceding list is no doubt incomplete as new species are described, so watch for new species!
