Cannot drop tablespace

I tried to drop a tablespace. This tablespace still shows up in dba_tablespaces.

I tried to drop a tablespace. This tablespace shows up in dba_tablespaces. I cannot drop the tablespace. I receive a message "tablespace xxxxxx does not exist."
Query DBA_TABLESPACES again. This time, note the exact spelling of the tablespace name. Then when issuing the DROP TABLESPACE command, spell the tablespace_name exactly as seen in DBA_TABLESPACE and this time, enclose the tablespace name in double quotes.
