Taxon standing

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.


Phylogenetics: Monotypic; segregated from Coryphantha based on the results of Vázquez-Sánchez & al. (2013), shown to be sister to the Mammilloid clade by Breslin & al. (2021).A
