Recircumscription and epitypification of Hechtia schottii Baker and H. stenopetala Klotzsch (Hechtioideae: Bromeliaceae). J. Torrey Bot. Soc. 139: 248-259. 2012.—Epitypes are designated for the Mexican species Hechtia schottii and Hechtia stenopetala. Complete descriptions of the two taxa are presented as well as specimen citations and iconography depicting relevant characteristics of the species and plants in habitat. The first species, known only from the States of Campeche and Yucatán, was based upon pistillate material (old fruits and immature pistillate buds) and leaf fragments; the epitype adds the staminate flowers and complete leaves. The second species, restricted to the Veracruz State, was based upon a plant with old, open fruits; the epitype adds the staminate flowers and leaves.
