Distribution: COLOMBIA; Cundinamarca,

Habitat: Unfortunately it has not been possible to ascertain the exact nativity of Vriesea ospinae. All known collections are suspected to have been obtained originally from Sra. Ospina's collection but considering the close affinity with V. chrysostachys it is quite probable that V. ospinae is to be found at medium elevations in S.E. Colombia.
