Locality: Ecuador, Zamora-Chinchipe Province - Actually on the highway Route 682 at the border of Zamora-Chinchipe and Loja Provinces in Podocarpus Park. This is a large plant over 180 cm in flower. I am not sure if this is Guzmania diffusa or not. It was growing terrestrially, or low near the ground epiphytically in very wet forest at an elevation of about 2500 meters. I unfortunately got no clear shots of the entire plant.
