    Okay that's kind of what I thought, wanted to check though.

    You're right though Nick, when I saw the one pic of the flower (the pinkish one) the other day I thought maybe primulaflora... Now, I'm 98% sure it's not.... Not really any help am I? lol
    I typo, therefore I edit.

    My guess is from observation of the vegetative parts of the plant, though those can fool ya. The overall shape of the plant, like a multipointed star, and the pointy shape of the leaves themselves are strikingly reminiscent of Pinguicula planifolia but could even be Pinguicula ionantha.

    Most of the warm-temperate pings(lutea, ionantha, caerulea, planifolia, and to a less certain extent, primuliflora) look alike when they are not in flower. Primuliflora can be easy to spot in a collection by the number of plantlets it produces. All of the planifolia I have seen are colored red/green or a deep red(lots of sun). I have never heard of or seen an alba form of planifolia, although it could exist. Of all the photos of ionantha I have seen, the plants have green/light green/yellowish rosettes like lutea and caerulea.

    Here are some better photos of the flowers.







    The last photo shows some color on the lower petal. This is a stain on the flower.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Sure looks like Pinguicula ionantha. Pinguicula ionantha is the only ping to stick out its beard just like that.
