We list Japanese-native carnivorous plant species and hybrids from four genera in two families, based on Komiya (2002) with some revisions and modifications. We also discuss facts and recent findings on selected species and hybrids from the list. Additionally, we review those of uncertain taxonomy or distribution as well as a potential carnivorous species.

Keywords: Japan, native, endemic, taxonomy, unresolved, Aldrovanda, Drosera, Pinguicula, Utricularia, Triantha, Droseraceae, Lentibulariaceae, Tofieldiaceae
