Are these by chance the same plant, with perhaps an incorrect spelling for the second one?

Air Plant (Tillandsia funckiana)

Listings in the Catalogue of Life:

Tillandsia funckiana Baker - Species - accepted name

Tillandsia funckiana var. funckiana - Infraspecific taxon - accepted name

Tillandsia funckiana var. recurvifolia Blass ex Rauh - Infraspecific taxon - accepted name

Thank you, Lin. Yes, T. funkiana was a misspelled duplicate, so I merged it with T. funckiana and I added the other two accepted names. Looks like the Tillandsia database might need updating.
