Leuenbergeria in Cact.-Avent. Int. 97: 26. 2012 ["2013"] sec. Lodé 2013
- ≡Pereskia subg. Leuenbergera in Cactaceae Syst. Init. 32: 7. 2014 syn. sec. Hernández-Ledesma & al. 2015
Phylogenetics: Segregated from Pereskia to include the Northern clade; see note under Pereskia.A
Category B. The genus is monophyletic based on phylogenetic studies that support the clade based on a sufficiently dense or even complete sampling, or support a monotypic genus as a distinct lineage, but do not provide a new taxonomic treatment at the species level. In many cases, older classical taxonomic synopses or a monographic treatment exist for these genera providing a reliable assessment of the species included.
