Phylogenetics:Pseudorhipsalis was newly circumscribed by Korotkova et al. (2017) based on the results of their phylogenetic study. A Pseudorhipsalis clade including the nomenclatural type P. alata received maximum support from all analyses therein, but P. ramulosa was not part of that clade and a new genus Kimnachia was established for P. ramulosa (see also there).
