    Pinguicula name confusion.

    Last year I have acquared a few pings and I believe the names supplied with the plants have been confused. Please help me identify these plants.

    This one was sold to me as : P. gracilis x moctezumae while I now believe it is P. 'Aphrodite'





    Another pinguicula that I believe was mislabled was this one P. gypsicola x moctezumae and I believe it is actually P. gracilis x moctezumae:




    And finaly this one was labled as P. moranensis. It resembls P. 'Titan' instead.

    I have Aphrodite, gracilis x moctezumae, and more recently added gypsicola x moctezumae... And I gotta say, the gyp x mocte looks exactly like gracilis x mocte... so I dunno if one of mine is mislabeled, or if they really are that similar.. But the last one of yours definitely does look like Titan to me.. Flower photos of all to compare would prolly be useful..

    One of yours is mislabled because I believe I sent you that "gypsicola x moctezuma" sorry.

    No flowers yet.

    hey gill za, I also think your gypsicola x moc is a gracilis x moc(assuming the one i have is actually a gracilis x moc). Do you have pictures of the flower of the first plant, cause it doesn't look like my Aphrodite. Matt

    I have found an older picture of the first plant flowering and updated the first post.

    MattB: Your second plant ( http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/k...t/100_2603.jpg ) looks like 'John Rizzi' to me.

    Here's a photo of my 'John Rizzi' for comparison: http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b3...1/bf392e3e.jpg
