Notes

Phylogenetics: Opuntia salmiana has been found as a well-supported lineage out of the Opuntia s.str. clade (Griffith & Porter, 2009; Majure & al., 2012), and so treated as separate genus recognized by a combination of distinctive morphological features. The former Salmiopuntia Frič is an invalid name (Mottram 2014a), and the attempted validation (Guiggi 2011) superfluous, considering Heath (1999).A
