Should this one be listed as the species cruenta? Neoregelia cruenta 'Rubra':

Lin, Good question! I looked at other named cultivars of cruenta and they are also just listed by cultivar name. Most of the time you will see them sold without the species name included.

@ScotTi, I don't know much at all about Bromeliads and I'm assuming there are thousands of unregistered cultivars out there but I noticed we don't have N. cruenta Rubra listed in the database and it does appear to be a registered cultivar.

When googling I found the vendor Bromeliad Paradise with a listing for a N. punctatissima 'Rubra' as well as a N. spectabilis 'Rubra'. Also when doing a google search, I saw listings of names like N. eleutheropetela rubra and N. Melanodonta Rubra. Who knows what those truly are. Smiling

Since Neoregelia cruenta 'Rubra' is a legitimate registered cultivar name, I'm wondering if it should be added to our database or the one currently listed have the species name added.

Lin, My thought is like yours and the species name should be included in the database to separate the N. Rubra's.

If it is a specific selection of a species, then it should have the species name added.

If it a interspecific hybrid (i.e. made of more than one species), then it should only have the genus in the botanical name field.

@Calif_Sue, @eclayne or @robertduval14 may be able to help with this.

I've added the species name to the existing entry. We definitely want to do that when we can.

In looking for N. punctatissima 'Rubra', using the advanced search at the BSI site, I selected Neoregelia and typed punctatissima into the notes box. Bromeliad (Neoregelia 'Punctate Red') appears to be the registered name. http://registry.bsi.org/index....

However, it may be the same plant as Bromeliad (Neoregelia ampullacea 'Purpurea') I added the species name to our entry.
http://registry.bsi.org/index.... I'll add a comment noting this.
