Any Pinguicula in Southern China?

Last sunday when I hiked on the Kowloon Peak, I saw some plant that
look similar to Pinguicula. The plants are in bloom. The flowers have
5 petals(?) - 2 above and 3 below. The surface of the leaves is
hairy. The plants grows among grasses on exposed slopes. Along a
hiking trail from 300m to about 500m I found a lot of them and at the
lower end of them trail I saw some Drosera spatulata putting out flower

I would like to know if there is any Pinguicula native to Southern
China. If so, any hints on identification? I'll probably go to there
this week to take pictures of the plants.

FYI, Hong Kong is situated on the Southern China coast.
