Ehlers & E. Gross, sp. nov. Die Brom 3: 112-122. 2014

This species seems to be related to Tillandsia socialis L.B. Sm. It differs from this by the following characteristics: Plant much smaller; leaves only half as long, forming basally nearly a pseudobulb vs. an open rosette; inflorescence composed of less and shorter spikes, which are more densely arranged and with shorter primary bracts; rhachis somewhat undulate and hardly visible; flower bracts distinctly shorter than the sepals and glabrous; adaxial sepals keeled; flowers more densely arranged and petals less spreading.
