Notes

Phylogenetics: The diminutive Eriosyce laui Lüthy from North Chile has been found to differ morphologically from the remaining taxa of Eriosyce s.l. by Nyffeler & Eggli (1997), and was subsequently segregated as the monotypic genus Rimacactus. This segregation is backed up by molecular data of Guerrero & al. (2020).
