    No way to say for certain without more observational information, especially observation of the flowers (Mexican Pinguicula are quite well known for having extremely variable foliage). Looks like it might possibly be, not a species at all, but perhaps, Pinguicula 'Titan' (a cultivar selected from a hybrid group). To my eye it has a resemblance to this cultivar, but that may just be a trick of its current growing conditions. It appears to be growing in somewhat low light.

    Looks like the commonly tissue cultured clone of moranensis. Doesn't seem to have the distinct petiole of 'Titan', but pic is a bit blurred.

    I would recommend looking through BobZ's photo finder to see if you can find a photo that looks exactly like yours. If you have a photo of yours or very good visual memory.

    looks like moranensis to me. It might be 'Titan' though. I have not seen the carnivorous leaves of mine yet.
