Taxon standing

Category D. The genus is polyphyletic, paraphyletic or nested in another genus.


Phylogenetics: The three Cipocereus species sampled by Franco & al. (2017) formed a well-supported clade that was nested in Cereus, sister to Cereus subg. Mirabella. The authors of that study did not make any conclusions as to whether Cipocereus should be merged in Cereus, therefore Cipocereus is still accepted here. See also note under Cereus.A
