×Trichopsis Y.Itô, ()
🌵 Author(s)

Nothogenus for intergeneric hybrids between Echinopsis and Trichocereus.

The names of nothogenera for bigeneric hybrids are formed by combining the names of the parental genera "into a single word, using the first part or the whole of one, the last part or the whole of the other (but not the whole of both) and, optionally, a connecting vowel" (article H.6.2, International Code of Nomenclature).

This is a later homonym of ×Trichopsis hort. (Trichoglottis × Vandopsis, Orchidaceae). Trichopsis Canestrini, 1860 is a genus of gourami fish.
