Notes

Four subspecies have been recognized in Turbinicarpus viereckii. Two of them (T. viereckii subsp. viereckii and T. viereckii subsp. major) were sampled in the phylogentic study of Turbinicarpus (Vázquez-Sánchez et al. 2019 and were resolved in different positions of the phylogenetic tree, suggesting they merit species rank, but node support was low. A more detailed study is therefore required to understand the morphological variation as basis to recognize species. All four subspecies are therefore left as such for this treatment.A
