Notes

Monotypic, sampled by Schlumpberger & Renner (2012), and found in a clade of several genera of columnar cacti, among others Praecereus, Facheiroa, Leocereus, Espostoopsis.A

Taxon standing

Category B. The genus is monophyletic based on phylogenetic studies that support the clade based on a sufficiently dense or even complete sampling, or support a monotypic genus as a distinct lineage, but do not provide a new taxonomic treatment at the species level. In many cases, older classical taxonomic synopses or a monographic treatment exist for these genera providing a reliable assessment of the species included.
