Lymania (named for Lyman Bradford Smith, American botanist)[1] is a genus of the botanical family Bromeliaceae, subfamily Bromelioideae. The genus was established in 1984 to "unite furrowed or winged species from Aechmea subgenus Lamprococcus, Araeococcus and Ronnbergia"[2] a group of plants native to the Bahian coast of the Brazilian rainforest. Modern DNA analysis has confirmed that Lymania is correctly classified as an independent genus containing two distinct clades[3].
