ABSTRACT
Two new species of Pinguicula from the Sierra Madre Oriental, Mexico, are described and illustrated. Pinguicula ibarrae from the vicinity of Tlanchinol, Hidalgo, belongs to the section Heterophyllum, and Pinguicula martinezii from Llano Chiquito, Queretaro, is in the section Agnata, both of subgenus Isoloba. Emphasis is placed on the great diversity of Pinguicula found in the physiographic province of the Sierra Madre Oriental, which concentrates the largest amount of species on a world-wide scale. Emphasis is also placed on the tendency of some Mexican species to inhabit desertscrub and tropical deciduous forest.
