The new subspecies Drosera bulbosa Hook.f. subsp. coronata R.P.Gibson is described from Western Australia. It differs from D. bulbosa subsp bulbosa and D. bulbosa subsp. major (Diels) N.G. Marchant primarily by having yellow pollen and styles that form an annulus (crown), around the exposed apex of the ovary. It is currently known from two locations; however it is not considered to be under imminent threat of extinction.
