The Genera of Cactaceae that occur in Brazil

The following list isn't complete, and I am not sure that the information provided here is entirely correct. I will be updating this list from time to time, and making corrections to it, as the project progresses. My intention is to describe each genus, and list the Brasilian species that belong to each one. I solicit your help in building this list, and appreciate any comments and suggestions you may have.
