- Addit.Note (1946): Charles Dills (2008-05-27) - Looks like Puya spathacea to me!
- Addit.Note (1946): Eric Gouda (2008-05-27) - Dutch: do you have any idea where it is from?
- Addit.Note (1946): Walter Till (2008-05-27) - Did you check Puya lilloi?
- Addit.Note (1946): Dutch Vandervort (2008-05-27) - Plant was sent to me as Puya dyckioides from a commercial nursery in Texas or Arizona. For what it is worth I have 2 and they are the same.
I will look up lillioi.

Sounds very reasonable. However, have a look into Flora Neotropica 14(1): 71
(1974) and compare entry 54 which separates P. lilloi from dyckioides:

- Addit.Note (1946): Dutch Vandervort (2011-12-18) - I guess I should specify that this plant was grown and photographed in my garden in Ventura, California 34ºN, 119ºW about 1/2 mile from the Pacific Ocean about 100 - 200 feet above sea level. As I mentioned a long time ago it was a mail order item -- I think from Yucca Do Nursery in Arizona. Wikipedia -- Global species have a photo labeled P. lillioi. It looks nothing like my plant. My plant is only about long in the leaves, 3 maybe almost 4 feet to the tip of the inflorescence. Inflorescence is slightly pendant -- or you might say, less than vertical. I am growing a pup of this plant in Mexico. It has not yet flowered. Yucca Do is: Http://www.yuccado.com
