Pinguicula balcanica, also known as the Balkanian butterwort, is a perennial carnivorous plant in the Lentibulariaceae family, endemic to the Balkans. It is found in Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia and Serbia in the subalpine parts of mountains at an altitude of 900 to 2500 meters above sea level. It, like most carnivorous plants, grows in wet, nutrient poor, acidic environments and can often be found in high altitude sphagnum bogs, near streams, and wet rocky places in mountains. It flowers in spring, from May to August, and produces seed from July to September. It survives winter in a hibernaculum.
