Aechmea sp. Iquitos
Photographer: Ricardo FernŠndez
Note: Cumaceba Lodge 40 kms west of Iquitos, Rio Amazonas.
- Note (1972): Eric J. Gouda (2008-09-09) - My first impression was A.setigera, but there are no long spines in the spikes. I have no idea what this could be.
- Identification (1972): Uwe Scharf (2009-12-03) =Aechmea longicuspis Baker
- Otherwise, I would support the identification of Eric. Aechmea setigera has a large distribution area and is quite variable and A. longicuspis is closely related. (Sent: email@example.com)
