Notes

Myrtillocactus schenkii and M. geometrizans were sampled by Arias & al. (2005) and were resolved sister to each other and in a polytomy with Polaskia chichipe, Myrtillocactus and Stenocereus. Hernández-Hernández & al. (2011) found a similar topology, with Myrtillocactus sister to a clade of Stenocereus, Polaskia, Escontria, and Isolatocereus, albeit with support <50%.A
