Byblis guehoi, commonly called the Rainbow Plant, is an annual carnivorous plant native to the Kimberley region of Western Australia. It was discovered by Russ Guého in August 2004 and formally described in 2008 by John Conran and Allen Lowrie. B. guehoi produces numerous pinkish-mauve flowers and is unique from other Byblis species in its tendency to grow branching stems. These plants were originally collected from Bobby’s Creek area on the Dampier Peninsula.
