Type not designated.

Original material: [icon] in Commelin, Hort. Med. Amstelod. Pl. Rar. 1: 109, t. 57. 1697; [icon] in Rheede, Hort. Malab. 11: 1, t. 1. 1692.

Note: Although Smith & Downs (in Fl. Neotropica 14: 2062. 1979) stated that this is based on the Hortus Clijfortianus account, there are no relevant specimens preserved in the Clifford herbarium. While Ewan (in Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 78: 58. 1991) reproduced Commelin’s cited t. 57 with the caption “… this drawing served as a basionym in the description of the pineapple by Linnaeus in the Species Plantarum in 1753", this is not a formal typification.
