A new putative natural hybrid bromeliad from southernmost Brazil, Tillandsia ×baptistana Gonçalves & Azevêdo-Gonçalves (Bromeliaceae), is here described. Its habit is very similar to T. mallemontii Glaziou ex Mez, but the floral characteristics are intermediate between the probable parental taxa (T. recurvata (L.) L. and T. mallemontii). A key to identify this hybrid and its parents on the basis of the floral characters is also presented.
