Drosera platypoda, the fan-leaved sundew,[1] is a tuberous perennial species in the genus Drosera that is endemic to south-west Western Australia. It grows 15 to 20 cm tall with a basal rosette of leaves with alternate cauline leaves along the stem. It is native to a region from Manjimup south-west to an area around the Scott River and east to Cape Riche. It grows in winter-wet sandy soils in heathland. It flowers in October.[2]

It was first formally described by Nicolai Stepanovitch Turczaninow in 1854.[2]
