VRIESEA ‘Pulmonata’ unknown ?

The only reference we can trace is that in Bromeliads for Modern Living by Dr Louis Wilson published in 1977 page 70. It is referred to here as a species which is clearly in error. Although not stated, the photo on the front cover is of the same or a very similar plant. In fact, our view is that it is yet another different spelling to ‘Poelmanii’ See details under ‘Poelmanii’ for history and problems with identification. Thanks to Eileen Killingley of NSW, Australia for bringing this to our attention. Note added 1/2012
