P. intricata was originaly described as a distinct species, but was later lumped in with P. elatior as a subspecies or variety. Genetic study has shown it to be separate from the P. elatior group in the paper "Does Primula intricata Gren. et Godr. Merit Species Rank? A Taxonomic Revision Based on nrDNA, cpDNA and AFLP Data" by ŞUTEU et al., Not Bot Hort Agrobot Cluj, 2011, 39(1):24-29 . This species can be distinguished from P. elatior by the leaf which gradually narrows into the petiole and a capsule which tapers markedly. Found in south and central Europe. See related P. elatior.
