Drosera yilgarnensisD. yilgarnensis was until very recently named D. peltata W.A. form. It is an erect species reaching up to 25 cm in height. The colour of stem and leaves can range from yellowish green to red-maroon. A basal rosette is always well developed before the stem will emerge later in the season.
The tubers are red. The sepals are very variable from glabrous to intensely glandular and from entire to fimbriate margins. According to Gibson et al. the seeds are mostly ovioid and 0.3 to 0.5 mm in size being the smaller than the seeds of most other species in the peltata complex whereas Lowrie describes them as 0.9 to 1.0 mm long.
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
