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 2448-7589.

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.

Keywords : Bromeliaceae; Mexico; taxonomy; Tillandsia grandis; T. heterophylla; T. macropetala; T. viridiflora.
