Wow what a clever and difficult contest! I can name some of them, but no way can I guess them all. This is going to be fun. Will you give any hints?

I picked a mix of some easy and some tricky varieties. I would be surprised if someone got all of them correct, so just throw out some guesses.

Remember, there won't be any random hybrids. Just species and cultivars; Most of them are fairly common in cultivation.

Thank you to everyone who submitted guesses. The winner is KStap18 with 10 out of 12 correct. Solutions:

a. Primuliflora
b. Kondoi
c. Martinezii
d. Lusitanica
e. Gigantea
f. Ehlersiae
g. Jaumavensis, but I also accepted Esseriana, since they look indistiguishable from my pic
h. Moranensis "A"
i. Cyclosecta
j. 'Aphrodite'
k. Agnata "Red Leaf"
l. 'Sethos'

I have plenty of pings and received a low number of responses, so everyone who did participate will receive plants. I'll be sending PMs shortly. Thanks for playing.
