Notes

Estevesia has not been included in any molecular study so far. It was provisionally placed in the synonymy of Harrisia by Nyffeler & Eggli (2010). The status of Estevesia was revisited by Franck (2016), stating that Estevesia had been erroneously synonymized with Harrisia (Nyffeler & Eggli 2010; Hernández-Ledesma et al. 2015), but was likely more related to Cereus s. str. and Monvillea Britton & Rose. However, this still needs to be confirmed by a phylogenetic study. A
