Note: Plant was obtained in Brazil by US collector some years ago. So is it really Vr muelleri, if there is a Vr muelleri? (Sent: email@example.com)

- Add Note: Eric Gouda (2014-03-05) - I think: Vriesea muelleri Mez Botanischer JahrbŁcher fŁr Systematik, Planzengeschichte und Pflanzengeographie. In: Engler, A. 30 (Beibl. 67): 7 (1902) could be a good species, but has a subdense inflorescence with suberect flowers and floral bracts about equaling the sepals. Not like this plant.

- Add Note: Peter Tristram (2014-03-05) - If this is a collected plant what is it? I have 'Catarina' on it for now. When the seed being produced from selfing grows on, more might be revealed. As for the holotype, I agree that the stated parentage looks unlikely. Confusing! Catarina must be a valid species, but what? No doubt there will be more in this sad saga, UD. Vr catarinaensis?
