This was news to me. Did anyone else know this?

 

Supposedly Trichoceres pachanoi aka Echinopsis pachanoi was reclassified as Trichocereus macrogonus var pachanoi (syn. Echinopsis macrogonus var pachanoi) in 2023.

it would be interesting if there was a DNA barcode for Trichocereus / Echinopsis and these classifications were phylogenetically informed.

 

Can't imagine anyone would fund that any time soon though:lol:
