Locality: Ecuador, Azuay Province - Not far from Banos (Cuenca) on road to Soldados at an elevation of 2800 meters. Also the last picture of one with seed pods is from 2900 meters 6.5 km south of Cumbe on Hwy 35 growing as a terrestrial on a rock hillside.
Photographer: Jerry Raack
Note: Here we a plant post anthesis with see pods growing at an elevation of 2880 meters along with Tillandsia stenoura (or maybe Tillandsia bongarana?). It was on a tree limb growing epiphytically, and was taken down to photograph it better.
