Cylindropuntia (Engelm.) F.M.Knuth in Nye Kaktusbog 102. 1930 sec. Majure & al. 2019



Phylogenetics: Griffith & Porter (2009) found no support for a monophyletic Cylindropuntia based on combined nuclear and plastid markers, while Bárcenas & al. (2011) find a monophyletic Cylindropuntia with high to maximal support based on plastid data only. Majure & al. (2019) showed that Cylindropuntia was indeed monophyletic and sister to Grusonia s.l., and Micropuntia was sister to the Grusonia + Cylindropuntia clade. See also under Grusonia and Micropuntia. A
