- Identification (13716): Walter Till (2018-03-16) =Tillandsia maculata Ruiz & Pav.
- Note (13716): Scott Sandel (2018-03-16) - Looks like what I posted here from Tabaconas Namballe Nat'l Sanctuary, in cloud forest at approx. 2800 meters. Tabaconas is close to Loja as the crow flies (or Andean Condor as the case may be). I thought it was tovariensis, but Walter id’ed as maculata. (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Note (13716): Eric Gouda (2018-03-16) - This type is very variable and we tend to say that the shorter branched ones are T.tovarensis and the longer ones like this one are T.maculata, but it is not that simple I'm afraid. (Sent: email@example.com)
