Dear "Dioecy",

Are you sure about the ID of these plants?

_Pinguicula vulgaris_ is sort of *rare* in the Pacific NW; it is mostly
replaced by _P.macroceras_ there. Do you have precise location (geographic,
habitat, altitude) data? I am especially interested in the southernmost
populations which reach N California and Oregon ("var.nortensis",
nom.nud.). Any further information is welcome.

_Utricularia vulgaris_ does not occur natively in N America, where it is
replaced by _U.macrorhiza_.

Kind regards
