Origin of depicted specimens: Spain, Prov. de Jaen, Sierra de Cazorla, 1200 m, limestone, collected by myself August 20, 1969. Grows on vertical rock walls, below overhanging rock parts in niches protected from direct rainfall. See also 7084 with P. alpina.

(This plant has been in cultivation since 1969!). Note the overlapping of the wide corolla lobes. The specimens from Rio Borosa (950727) have less overlap.

Note the stolons in 7220 and 7222. After flowering Pinguicula vallisneriifolia forms the long-leaved summer rosette. Characteristically Pinguicula vallisneriifolia has also digestive glands on the underside of the leaves.

The rosettes in 950420 will soon develop flowers and stolons, followed by the long-leaved summer rosette.
