Leaf: 2--5 cm, elliptic to ovate, green to dark brown. Inflorescence: 1--5 per rosette, 1--2 dm. Flower: corolla (including spur) 13--21 mm, 5-lobed, (pale) blue-violet, center of lower lip white; lobes obovate, throat hairy, spur 6--9 mm. Chromosomes: 2n=64.
Ecology: Moist slopes, cliffs, serpentine banks; Elevation: < 1830 m. Bioregional Distribution: n KR (Del Norte, Siskiyou cos.); Distribution Outside California: southwestern Oregon; also northern Oregon to Alaska, Russia; also Japan. Flowering Time: Apr--Jul Note: May not be distinct from Pinguicula vulgaris L. (also 2n=64); plants overwinter as dense bud, proliferate by detachment of basal daughter buds (gemmae).
Synonyms: Pinguicula macroceras subsp. macroceras; Pinguicula macroceras subsp. nortensis J. Steiger & J.H. Rondeau; Pinguicula vulgaris L. subsp. macroceras (Link) Calder & Roy L. Taylor
Unabridged Note: May not be distinct from Pinguicula vulgaris L. (also 2n=64); California, southwestern Oregon plants with calyx lobe tips +- blunt, corolla lobes non-overlapping, sometimes treated elsewhere as Pinguicula macroceras subsp. nortensis J. Steiger & J.H. Rondeau (which might not have been effectively published); plants overwinter as dense bud, proliferate by detachment of basal daughter buds (gemmae).
