    Unhappy

    Maybe this is a bit of a silly question, but here goes: Which form of Pinguicula moranensis is the ping that was once known as "P. caudata" distributed as today?

    I ask because I have seen various references to P. moranensis (G) as a synonym of "P. caudata" as well as reference to a variety called P. moranensis var. caudata. Which of these is correct?

    Is it still possible to find the original "P. caudata" in trade (the plant not the name)?

    Thanks for your help,
    Corey

    We still grow it in France and I guess in Europe.

    This is a P. moranensis var. moranensis according to S.Zamudio and not var. neovolcanica.

    S.Zamudio wrote that the original type locality may be wrong (not from Mina de Moran but surely from real del Monte in the same state)
