Monographs Details: Heliamphora tatei Gleason
Authority: Maguire, Bassett. 1978. The botany of the Guayana Highland--part X. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 29: 1-288.
Discussion:With few specimens at hand, Gleason proposed three names to apply to the dendroid Heliamphora of Cerro Duida. Now, with more material available, and having observed vast extents of the plant on adjacent Huachamacari, it is evident that but a single species occurs on the two proximal plateaus. I have selected, from the three names available, that of the collector as the applicable epithet. It seems reasonable to hold H. macdonaldae tentatively as a variety.
