Notes

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.
