    S.J. Casper described these two species from Cuba :

    Pinguicula bissei with reddish to white flowers






    and Pinguicula caryophyllacea close to P. benedicta with pink to deep red flowers.

    Beautiful!!

    Has anyone introduced them to cultivation? I am going to have to add those to my want/spend the next 5 years hunting for list.

    Gorgeous! Another red-flowered ping(or is there others besides P. laueana?).
    I am not sure on how to ask this w/o sounding ignorant, but how are visitor relations to Cuba these days? Cuba is not real big and it's very close to the US, so how did these remain hiddend for so long?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Hello Eric!!

    What fantastic news!! I can't believe they found anotehr 2 species of Pings in Cuba. Wasn't it just last year that another 2 new species were published?? What amazing diversity of this genus is being uncovered on that island. And finally another red-flowered Ping species! What a beauty! As for the other species, the flowers are also fantastic, those evenly-shaped petals remind me of P.heterophylla or P.filifolia. If you have an electronic copy of the paper, please send it to me Eric!

    Best Wishes,

    Cuba is VERY happy to have your tourism dollars.

    Unfortunately, if you're American, it is still illegal to travel/trade there. But I recall reading an article (I think in Newsweek) about Americans going to Cuba via Canada or Mexico, and how the Cubans very accomodatingly did not stamp their passports, and had "specially labeled" cigars and rum designed to pass US customs without problem.

    Thanks for the pictures! Where were they published?

    Isn't P. utriculariodes supposed to have a red flower?
