There are 4 species in the Drosera section Prolifera. Drosera adelae, Drosera prolifera, and Drosera schizandra are commonly known as "The Three Sisters". Recently a fourth "sister" was discovered and it was named Drosera buubugujin. These species are endemic to far north Queensland. They are unique to the genus in that they are found growing exclusively in rainforest habitat.
