- Identification (9600): Walter Till (2011-11-29) =Pitcairnia cf. abundans
- Fits quite well this species. See also Polibot√°nica 23: 93-100 (2007)
- Add Note (9600): Eric Gouda (2011-11-29) - In some ways it resembles Pitcairnia abundans, on the other hand Pitcairnia abundans has a very typical undulate petal apex that looks very odd in the flower buds that are already divergent and it must have dimorphic leaves. This specimen much resembles the P.bulbosa like ones form the Guiayana schield
