ABSTRACT
Pitcairnia undulata Scheidweiler is recorded for the first time from Mexico. This plant, collected on calcareous slopes of Cerro del Madrigal near Teapa, state of Tabasco, is identified as P. undulata, in spite of differences in the measurements of some structures between the plants collected in Tabasco and the original description. The possibility of a mistake in the designation of Brazil as the site of origin for the plants cultivated at the Botanical Garden of Berlin, on wich the original description was based, is pointed out.
