Abstract

Vriesea psittacina is a widespread bromeliad species in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Here, we discuss nomenclatural issues of its infraspecific classification. We performed a nomenclatural revision based on the main monographs for the family Bromeliaceae. In addition, we analyzed specimens to clarify questions involving the associated binomials and to provide taxonomic notes of the species and its varieties. We propose three new synonyms and describe a new variety, V. psittacina var. jiboiensis, which occurs in the Brazilian state of Bahia. We provide illustrations, notes, conservation status, and geographic distribution of the treated taxa. We also provide an identification key and a description of diagnostic characters of the resulting varieties.
