Pinguicula lavalvae (Innangi & Izzo)
- Campania, southern Italy

Comments: See page 56 (http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn/articles/CPNv44n2p48_61.pdf ): The recently proposed P. lavalvae (named after Prof. La Valva of Italy; Innangi & Izzo, in press) represents a pale to white flowered population of P. hirtiflora. The variation in shape and size of calyx and corolla lobes, as well as the paler color pattern, fall well in the natural range of P. hirtiflora var. hirtiflora, as it is known between and within populations in the center of the species’ distribution in the Balkans and northern Greece.
