We compared the life history traits of an amphidiploid species, Drosera tokaiensis (Komiya & C. Shibata) T. Nakamura & Ueda, with those of the parental species, a diploid Drosera rotundifolia L and a tetraploid Drosera spatulata Labill. to characterize them and clarify the conditions for coexistence. The ranges of the parental species are quite different, but overlap in Japan. The amphidiploid and the parents grow together in some natural habitats.
