The Tuberous Drosera

List of Species

List of Tuberous Drosera Species

The correct classification of the tuberous drosera is still disputed and from time to time some new species are discovered, some existing species are renamed, some subspecies become species and some species become subspecies. The last and hopefully long lasting renaming was made in the great work "Opus Mangnum" from Allen Lowrie were some new species are intruduced and lots of subspecies were given the rank of species. In order not to be too confused I wrote in the list the former names according to the above mentioned Opus Magnum.

Because of all this naming, renaming and re-renaming it is possible, that there are some mistakes. If you see one please contact me.
