Subfamily: Cactoideae
Tribe: Notocacteae
Distribution: Rio Grande do Sul - Brazil (South America)
Habit: Globose

Species Notes: The variety murielii was only published under the genus Notocactus. I have listed it here only to be consitent with the placement of Notocactus as a whole into Parodia per the majority of modern publications. This may be moved out at a later date when I incorporate the taxonomy of Briton and Rose as well as Backeberg.
