Austrocylindropuntia in Blätt. Kakteenf. 1938(6): 21. 1938 sec. Ritz & al. (2012)
Austrocylindropuntia as originally treated in Hunt (2006) was found as not monophyletic by Ritz & al. (2012). Austrocylindropuntia lagopus (K. Schum.) F. Ritter was found sister to the remaining species of Austrocylindropuntia and Cumulopuntia and was therefore segregated as a monotypic genus Punotia D. R. Hunt; see also there.
