Robin, Gonzer:

May be. In the book "Fragmentos de Mata Atlântica do Nordeste", José A. Siqueira Filho and Elton Leme write (translating):

"According to Rauh (1986) T. chapeuensis differs from T. gardneri by narrower and also more rigid leaves, floral scape erect, rigid, besides the more sparsely arranged inflorescence branches. In addition to these features, T. chapeuensis distinguished by the inflorescence distinctly equaling or longer than the leaves, branches more divergent .... Unlike T. gardneri, which prefer more humid environments, T. chapeuensis is best suited to live in inland areas subject to greater dryness"

T.chapeuensis  is not cited for the state of São Paulo, where I found it, but it is mentioned for the state of Minas Gerais, neighbor.

Thanks for that information Reginaldo. Although I must say my specimen (with undisputable provenance) has very supple leaves, not rigid at all. I will post a photo tomorrow.

T. gardeneri for me has very soft recurving foliage (and rots at the drop of a hat!) with a very congested inflo.  T. chapeuensis turriformis has very soft recurved leaves - I am not aware of typical chapeuensis having supple foliage.  maybe this thing is an intergrade between the two?
