I found this bromeliad in bloom at a convenient height to photograph, that was lucky as most grow high up in the tree canopies, Atlantic Forest, Paraty, SE Brazil

I think it looks like this one from your link Janet!
Aechmea nudicaulis
http://botu07.bio.uu.nl/bcg/img/show.php?img=nb68/Aechmea%20...
It is one of the 32 species in that area (Flora do Brasil)

I googled them all! Phewwww.. Hilarious!
Now I'm certain it is indeed Aechmea nudicaulis!
Thank You! Thumbs up
