NEOREGELIA ‘Bob Read’ N/A <1997

A species plant that Dr. Robert Read obtained from Burle-Marx in the 1970's but never described. The large petals suggest sub-genus Longipetalopsis and both Gary Hendrix and Bob Worth suggest diamantinensis (now bahiana) as in Leme's Bromeliads in Brazilian Wilderness page 100. No one has yet done a detailed comparison.
