That sounds interesting Rafa 8)

Last week in the hills north of here I came across all three pinguicula species found in Ireland as well as Drosera rotundifolia
PP. grandiflora & vulgaris have almost finished flowering so soon will be hard/impossible to distinguish.  Even in flower they can be a challenge because intermediate forms are common here that may not be the hybrid x scullyi.
P. lusitanica flowers longer and was still in good condition, perhaps helped by cool damp weather in recent weeks.
