- Identification: Walter Till (2010-11-24) =Tillandsia lorentziana
- I see no essential difference to the variable T. lorentziana which grows both epiphytically and epilithically in Argentina and Bolivia. T. afonsoana (sic!) should have laxly lepidote flower bracts, those in your plant are glabrous. Anyway, this is not a diagnostic character.
