- Identification (6103): Walter Till (2010-10-11) =Tillandsia myosura
- Left side plant is T. gilliesii cf. subsp. polysticha, right side plant is T. myosura. The latter is variable and giant forms exist, the type, however, is quite small. This is a puzzling alliance with intermediates, perhaps hybrids. Should await molecular studies!
