Weberbauer + Cereus, the name of a genus of columnar cacti and a designation for columnar cacti in general. Named for German botanist August Weberbauer (1871-1948) or for Cereus weberbaueri (= Weberbauerocereus weberbaueri), which at the time was considered a synonym of Cereus fascicularis, the type species of Weberbauerocereus. This is a replacement name for the invalid Meyenia, which had Cereus weberbaueri as its type species.
Weberbauerocereus species are known in Peru as huarango [Quechua waranqu], a generic term for “large shrubby plant” (David Yetman, The Great Cacti: Ethnobotany & Biogeography: 212. 2007).#Cacti named for people from Germany #Genus accepted in POWO #Replacement names
