I've been meaning to reply to Andy ( Mctractor) but kept forgetting.
I think the Leptinella Potentilla may actually now be Leptinella Squalida, also known as 'New Zealand Brass Buttons' . There is also a variation of this called "Leptinella squalida 'Platt's Black' " which has a much darker leak. I've tried to grow both of these in the past with little success, i.e, they died!

However, to pick up on Dave's point about naming, the Leptinella family comprises 33 species and have suffered various name changes and reclassifications! Do a search for Leptinella and the Wikipedia entry has more info.
