Epiphyllopsis

Epiphyllopsis A.Berger ()
🌵 Author(s)
🌵 Type Epiphyllopsis gaertneri
Etymology

Epiphyllum (presumably Epiphyllum Pfeiff. = Schlumbergera (truncata), not Epiphyllum Haw. = Epiphyllum as it is now understood) + Greek –opsis ‘looking like’ Not explained by Berger. Presumably for the similarity to Epiphyllum truncatum = Schlumbergera truncata.

Plants of the World Online inconsistently refers this genus to Hatiora and the type species to Schlumbergera.
