KROMER, Thorsten et al. Taxonomic and nomenclatural status of the Mexican species in the Tillandsia viridiflora complex (Bromeliaceae). Act. Bot. Mex [online]. 2012, n.99, pp. 1-20. ISSN 0187-7151.
Based on a systematic study of the Mexican species in the Tillandsia viridiflora complex, the taxonomic and nomenclatural status of these species is clarified. The former synonym T. macropetala is reestablished as a species. An identification key for the complex species (T. grandis, T. macropetala and T. viridiflora), as well as a complete synonymy and detailed descriptions of the taxa are included.
