Pinguicula medusina


Recommended Posts

Is anyone up to date on the current classification of Pinguicula heterophylla and P. medusina? I have encountered plants in various parts of the Sierra Norte and Valles Centrales regions of Oaxaca recently. They produce plantlets on their leaf tips, allegedly a hallmark of Pinguicula medusina, but do not flower in the summer, following expectations for P. heterophylla  in that regard. Do all P. heterophylla really produce leaf tip plantets or is something else going on here?  

Here are photos from one of the locations:  Pinguicula medusina and P. moranensis in the Ixtepeji.
