Otto Schwarz (in Wiss Zeit Friedr.-Schill. Univ. Jena Math. Nat. Reiche 17(3). 1968), it seems was the first person to have drawn attention to the correct nomenclature. An earlier reference to Primula nutans is by J.G. Gmelin (1769).

The species is widespread and closely related to Primula pamirica Fedorov, from which it differs in having a more slender habit, the fewer flowers per umbel and the calyx which is less glandular-punctate.
