Note: The T. paraensis has evoked a large amount of discussion amongst the tillandsia group in Australia. Virtually everybody thinks I have no hope at all of keeping it alive. The interesting aside is that Lotte resurrected the name T. juruana in Die Bromelie, 1998, for this particular form coming from the eastern Andes in Peru. Harry doesn’t recognise it, and follows Smith and Downs, thereby naming it T. paraensis as you have.
