Graft-chimaeral genus for intergeneric graft-chimaeras of Astrophytum and Myrtillocactus.

The names of graft-chimaeral genera are formed "by combining part of the name of the genus of one of the component genera, connected by a vowel, with the full name of the other component genus (condensed formula), and prefixing the addition sign β€œ+”" (article 24, International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants).

Based on Astrophytum asterias + Myrtillocactus geometrizans.
