Guzmania poortmanii ((André) André ex Mez)
|syn. Thecophyllum poortmanii (André)|
Ecuador: Loja Province
|local name: -|
extinction date: sometimes in the 19. century
|Poortman's Guzmania is only
known on the basis of the typus material which was collected between the
cities of Cangonama and Chinchanga in the Ecuadorian province of Loja.
The former habitat of this species is now almost completely deforested, an the survival of this species is therefore very unlikely.
