Aporocactus Lem. in Ill. Hort. 7: misc. 67. 1860 sec. Cruz, M.Á., Arias, S. & Terrazas, T., 2016

Notes

Used to be included in Disocactus in recent treatments (Barthlott 1991, Kimnach 1993 in Haseltonia 1: 95-139, Bradleya 9: 81-92, Barthlott & Hunt 1993 in Kubitzki). Cruz et al, in their phylogenetic study of Disocactus, found the two Aporocactus species to be not closely related to Disocactus but to form a separate well-supported lineage within Hylocereeae. Therefore Aporocactus was reinstated [Editorial]
