Here's a link:

You'll have to scroll down a little for the care info. Because it is a 'Mexican' Pinguicula it has two growth states as described below...
Mexican pinguicula don't have a dormancy period (though the term is often used), they change their growth habits from carnivorous (summer) leaves to succulent (winter) leaves. The cold won't really affect them much, what you need to do is lower lighting gradually and stop watering. Let 'em dry out. You can water them once every few weeks if you feel you must but I haven't watered some of mine for over a month and they're fine. The key to a good, successful and prolonged succulent phase is lack of water.
It's not uncommon for Mexican Pinguicula to sometimes enter their succulent growth phase randomly during the year, this could be due to lack of water where it's needed (right at the roots) or just because these plants are massive trolls.

possibly Gacilis?Its unknown sofar I can't really see them properly; gracilis are very, very tiny though!
P. Yucca 1717 Seems right
huajuapan OR Titan OR true blue Too small to tell at the moment, I think.
Gracilis x moctezumae (I think) I most certainly think so; the leaves are tell tale of a moctezumae hybrid
esseriana Too small to tell but very probable.
Gypsicola x kohres I think Seems likely due to leaf formation.
Agnata TrueBlue OR TItan Seems reminsicent of agnata, though I'm not sure.
John Rizi OR gigiantea
gigantea x moctezumae
The others are too similar to tell apart at this point.
