Wild century plant, Agave weberi
These thick two to three foot leaves would be really hard to press and save on an 18 inch herbarium sheet. I don't know what they do with such specimens, but I'm sure they have a good answer. The shoots with baby plants you can see here among the larger leaves are typical of this species, whatever you call it. They would make this an easily cultivated and transported plant. As the A. weberi version, it was also brought to Texas long ago, and grows wild there.
