    I've been growing this plant, originally received as Pinguicula (Mola), and since the moniker "Mola" is not a valid cultivar name, but is considered a synonym for the validly registered cultivar, Pinguicula 'Hameln'. I was glad to give it a proper label, however, now that my plants are flowering, it appears that the flower does not match the published standard. Uh oh. The O.C.D. in me hates it when that happens.

    Looks like it gets to go back to being the hybrid (Pinguicula gypsicola x Pinguicula moranensis). Most likely it is a victim of naming error, too many growers, unfamiliar with correct nomenclature, mistakenly believe that "cultivars" are the names of hybrids.
