From http://meconopsisworld.com     
" Meconopsis cambrica is no longer considered to be really related closely to the Himalayan species and is in a different genera (M. pseudomeconopsis is proposed) However strictly M. cambica has precedence and all the other Himalayan species should go in a new genera. A solution is that taxonomists find the courage to break their own rules and formally put M. cambrica into a new genus! "

See how complicated things get when we try to categorise nature!

This plant is an enthusiastic spreader of its seed in UK gardens, Bernd - it is too pretty to really be a weed - but some people will call it one  ;)   I embrace it for its golden charms - for the most  part   :)
