image 66(2)6.jpg is missing! In Honour of Franz Georg Gruber (Part 1) In search of a very special bromeliad Goudaea ospinae var. gruberi Luther
    Peter Tristram
Confused with the title? That's because the new genus, Goudaea, was recently created for a small group of Andean Vriesea species based on a phylogenetic analysis of molecular (DNA) data followed by mapping newly reassessed morphological characters onto the final trees. The two species are Goudaea ospinae and Goudaea chrysostachys, including the recognised varieties in each. Considering what a typical Vriesea flower looks like, think of Vriesea carinata or V. fosteriana, then it's no wonder G. ospinae and G. chrysostachys had to be moved into their own genus. They are quite unique and more closely related to Cipuropsis amicorum and Zizkaea tuerkheimii, both ex-Vriesea as well!
