    Can anyone give me a fairly certain identification on this one? It came to me as Piinguicula potosiensis. I think it is most likely Pinguicula potosiensis. Second opinions wanted.

    My P. potosiensis has a different flower than that. It is purple but has two white lines on each petal. The leaves are lighter green and have purple viens.
    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.

    I am now fairly convinced it is a clone of Pinguicula potosiensis. I have others with red leaves, and their flowers appear very similar. Also some links on BobZ's CP Photo Finder show a very similarly marked and colored flowers, though their corolla segments are somewhat narrower, one of these is identified below:
