This is an article (in Spanish) stemming from the PhD Thesis of Roberto which was defended in 1976. Initially, Roberto wanted to study Gymnocalycium, but the work revealed to be overwhelming. He thus decided to focus on a smaller genus, i.e., Trichocereus. With his first wife, he made three field trips using a French 2 CV pick-up (Citroën) as a camping car. The resulting work is still valid although some recombinations have been published. It is furthermore of great help since Trichocereus are rarely seen in collections because of their dimensions.
