Notes

Monotypic; sampled by Hernández-Hernández & al. (2011) and Schlumpberger & Renner (2012) and found unresolved within the Oreocereus clade.A,B,C

Taxon standing

Category B. The genus is monophyletic based on phylogenetic studies that support the clade based on a sufficiently dense or even complete sampling, or support a monotypic genus as a distinct lineage, but do not provide a new taxonomic treatment at the species level. In many cases, older classical taxonomic synopses or a monographic treatment exist for these genera providing a reliable assessment of the species included.
