A brief commentary on the genera of tribe Cereeae is presented, with diagnoses of some genera, notes on the circumscription of subgenera and comments on several infrageneric and infraspecific taxa. A key to genera and a phylogenetic dendrogram are presented. Various new names in Cereus, Pilosocereus, Arrojadoa, Coleocephalocereus and Melocactus are published. Species relationships in Melocactus are briefly discussed.
