Notes

Phylogenetics: Bergerocactus is a monotypic genus within the Pachycereinae clade, and may be sister to Nyctocereus (Arias & al. 2005). Bergerocactus emoryi represents a unique tetraploid taxon, with the possibility of hybridizing with Myrtillocactus and Pachycereus in the floristic province of Baja California, where it is endemic.A
