|TILLANDSIA ‘Llacanora’||? / Derek Butcher*||?|
Australian growers Mick Romanowski and Peter Tristram collected this species variant of T. tectorum in 2003 in Peru, on rocky outcrops just out of Cajamarca on the road to Llacanora at 2700m.altitude. The inflorescence is a compact capitate head. Leaves are within the range for T. tectorum but are not tomentose-lepidote as with typical T. tectorum but are more subappressed, meaning they look flat grey rather than fluffy white. Reg.
