Len Colgan ... "While discussing T. gerdae, you might be interested in this "other" species included in the presentation of my trip, "The Tillandsias of Bolivia".
It is T. jarmilae, named and described by a Czech botanist in honour of his wife. It was collected just west of the type location of T. gerdae, which, by the way, is widely spread giving me at least three different forms.
IMHO, it is merely T. gerdae with the aid of Adobe Photoshop. Or am I being too suspicious?"
