Notes for the Genus:

Cipocereus

Etymology -The locality for the type species is Serra do Cipo - a cereus from that location.
Cipocereus is a small group of Brazilian short columnar species most notable for the blue-colored fruits of most species. This fruit has a watery pulp and this trait has been a key factor in placing species within the genus. This genus dates to 1979 although some of the species were known under different genera for many years before that. Once the genus was created by F. Ritter, he and other taxonomists moved in a few species from elsewhere and one new species was discovered not previously named.
