Drosera graomogolensis is a carnivorous plant species native to the State Minas Gerais in Brazil and is now cultivated as an ornamental in Europe. In Brazil, it grows in the campos rupestres habitat.[1]

Drosera graomogolensis is an herb up to 34 cm tall. Leaves are wine-red, forming a basal rosette, up to 3.5 cm long and 6.5 cm broad, covered with sticky glandular hairs on the upper surface. The plant produces 1 or 2 flowering stalks, each with 10–16 large pinkish-violet flowers.[1][2]

The species is named for the type locale, Grão-Mogol.[1]
