Notes

The expanded Selenicereus incl. Hylocereus and Weberocereus p.p. as presented here is based on the results of the comprehensive phylogenetic study of the Hylocereeae of Korotkova et al. (2017).A,B

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
