Dear David,

The *temperate* _Pinguicula_ species found in the USA are _P.
vulgaris_ and _P. macroceras_. These do not exist (AFAIK) in the
subtropical regions you mentioned above. The species you meant are
termed "coastal plain species" or SE US species, botanists refer to
them as subgen. Isoloba (the temperate species above belong to
subgen. Pinguicula).

Kind regards
