Notes

Phylogenetics: Reinstated by Korotkova et al. (2017), who found Strophocactus testudo (≡ Deamia testudo (Karw.) Britton & Rose, the nomenclatural type of Deamia) and S. chontalensis to form a highly-supported clade (1 PP, 98% MLBS, 99% JK), as sister to the subtribe Pachycereinae, and not closely related to the type species of Strophocactus.A

Taxon standing

Category A. The genus is monophyletic based on a complete or very comprehensive phylogenetic study, and a phylogeny-based taxonomic synopsis was published.B
