    As far as I know, nobody has written a key to mexican Pings, and many of the papers detailing their description are in German and Spanish.
    With so many new species of Pinguicula having been discovered and named (or awaiting formal description) it would be nice if a key and a book on these wonderful plants was produced.
    Are your plants in flower?, if not it is probably impossible to ID them correctly. If they are flowering try the photos at these websites to help you :
    Oliver Gluch's Ping Page
    Japanese Carnivorous Plant Society

    Don't worry if your German or Japanese isn't up to much, the Latin names are the same.

    Cheers

    No flowers yet but 2 are about to so I'll wait till then and see what I can do.

    The foliage on some of these is quite interesting and while it might not give an absolute identification I can eliminate plants like moranensis, agnata and the like so that is at least a start.

    Thanks for the links

    I hope they are not hybrids! Unless you know the parentage they could be very tricky.

    First flower.

    Breif Description: Dark violet face with white throat, back and spur are white. 15mm across, 10mm top to bottom, spur 25mm. Individual petals are 7mm from throat to tip and 4mm wide.

    Any ideas?

    From the photo you sent (Do1714) I would say this is agnata, or some variation of it.

    Pyro,

    I am 100% certain that the ABG1714 is Pinguicula cyclosecta from the pic that you sent me.
