Would anyone know if this is the correct name or has it been changed?
I notice in a previous post apparently Selenicereus Pteranthus is now the name for S.Macdonaldiae and S.Boeckmanii. I have both.The former has enormous blooms the latter at best medium large blooms and both are different.
How does this work then?

I don't know about your Rhipsalis Steve (I have my own actually to post up here to get ID as well :wink: ) but first thoughts on your Selenicereus pteranthus & Selenicereus macdonaldiae is that one was originally incorrectly ID'd :-? I purchased a couple of Selenicereus grandiflorus cuttings from a lady on eBay a few weeks ago and I was going to swap one for something else but I was quickly told (nicely :mrgreen: ) that I might as well just ignore the label as the chances are it could be anyone of the species or even a hybrid as their regularly mislabeled :shock:

Have a look here for an example of what I mean http://bcss.org.uk/foruma/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=151297

Very interesting Carl,thanks.
The video of S.Grandiflorus,one night,is what I have as S.G.
However I was told it was Pteranthus by one 'guru' and then told it was S.G. by another.
As I got mine from a guy here who specialises in Selenicereus I'm sticking by his names,but they,and other genuses seem to get changed regularly.which is confusing.
