Polish term or phrase: kujawkie
mam w tekście wielokrotnie 'kujawskie', kujawskich etc.
np.: kujawkie gatunki rodzaju Thelidium
W kilku miejscach mogę zrobić "from Kujawy/from the region of Kujawy" etc., ale niestety nie zawsze.
Na internecie widzę 3 pisownie: Kuiavian, Kujawian i Cuiavian. Która jest jedyna i słuszna? :)
