Notes

Phylogenetics: Originally monotypic with B. brasiliensis. Majure & al. (2012) found good support for a sister-group relation of Opuntia schickendantzii F.A.C.Weber, and transferred this species to Brasiliopuntia (Majure & Puente, 2014). Köhler & al. (2020) found strong support for a sister-relationship of Brasiliopuntia + Tacinga Britton & Rose.A
