Abstract

Drosera Solaris is described as a new species from Guyana and illustrated. It belongs to D. subg. Drosera sect. Drosera and seems to be related to D. felix and D. kaieteurensis, the only other neotropical species with cup-like dehiscing capsules. Data on its distribution, habitat and ecology as well as an identification key to the three related species are given.
