This is a guess but this species has been collected neat the National Park. I am sending you a description direct to you so you can check it. If you are going to do more exploring it may be worthwhile joining the WWWBromeliad Society. That way you get a CD and access to lots of descriptions (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
