Graft-chimaeral genus for intergeneric graft-chimaeras of Epiphyllum and Gymnocalycium.

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).

Intended as a replacement name for +Hylogymnocalycium, which is based on Gymnocalycium mihanovichii β€˜Hibotan’ + Hylocereus undatus (= Selenicereus undatus), but the combination β€œEpiphyllum undatum” was never published.
