Notes

Phylogenetics: Weberocereus was newly circumscribed by Korotkova et al. (2017) based on the results of their phylogenetic study. Therein, Weberocereus was depicted as polyphyletic, a clade containing five species, including W. tunilla ― the type species ― was supported with 1 PP, 82% MLBS, 80% JK, but W. glaber and W. tonduzii were resolved at different positions within the Selenicereus/Hylocereus clade and are therefore excluded from Weberocereus.
