Phylogenetics: Pseudorhipsalis was newly circumscribed by Korotkova & al. (2017) based on the results of their phylogenetic study. A Pseudorhipsalis clade including the nomenclatural type P. alata received maximum support from all analyses therein, but P. ramulosa was not part of that clade and a new genus Kimnachia was established for P. ramulosa (see also there).A

Taxon standing

Category A: The genus is monophyletic based on a complete or very comprehensive phylogenetic study, and a phylogeny-based taxonomic synopsis was published.B
