Notes

Praecereus was found monophyletic, but at the same time nested in Cereus by Franco & al. (2017) based on plastid trnS-trnG. Hovever, the authors of that study did not make any statement as to whether Praecereus should be merged in Cereus, therefore Praecereus is still accepted here. See also note under Cereus.A,B

Taxon standing

Category D. The genus is polyphyletic, paraphyletic or nested in another genus.
