Drosera gracilisD. gracilis is a reddish erect species reaching up to almost 5 to 20 cm in height. According to Allen Lowrie it can be distinguished from other members in the peltata complex by its often smaller stature, finer, reddish coloured overall form and very fine stem as well as a beak-shaped appendage on the apical pole of the seed.
The tubers are red.
Please note that Gibson et al do not consider D. gracilis a species separate from D. peltata.
More details on this species can be found Allen Lowrie's Magnum Opus as well as in the recent review of the D. peltata complex species by Gibson, Conn and Bruhl: Austral. Syst. Bot. 25 (1): 75. 2012
