The taxonomy of the unique Echinocereus pensilis is updated based on recent molecular evidence that supports the 1974 reassessment of this species as meriting its one genus. Hence the most appropriate current taxonomy is for a monospecific genus with the sole species Morangaya pensilis. This species is endemic to Baja California South where it is very localised, being found only in the mountains of the Cape region.
