Primula recubariensis

We were given a small plant some time ago (unfortunately cannot remember by whom) which was labelled Primula recubariensis.  It is flowering beautifully so I thought I would check to see if there were any images with which to compare it.  From information I've found, I don't think it is rightly named but would like to know what it is!   It is a dark purple-red colour, white eye. About 15 mm diameter. It has two flowers and a bud at the moment.  The leaves are obovate, shallowly serrated and covered in farina.

Hard to tell from your photo, Diana  - might  even be a form of P. hirsuta
