Someone who knows something about Rhipsalis:
This site was updated in December 2017. Many pages were edited to realign photos. Soon we will dd a list of recent publicatons about Rhipsalis.
We will be more diligent about correcting errors brought to our attention. Tell Ken (email@example.com) and be as clear as possible so he can tell what to look for: inactive links, missing photos. He is not enthusiastic about correcting typos and inconsistencies in use of boldface.
Here is an interesting blog with a long discussion of Rhipsalis: http://blogs.reading.ac.uk/tropical-biodiversity/2014/01/rhipping-yarns-about-rhipsalis-baccifera/
Awhile ago -- a long while ago -- we laboriously added outstanding Rhipsalis research by Alice Calvente and Nadja Korotkova to this website, along with many references from older sources. Now a user can find just about every historical name cross-referenced to its currently accepted species name with all the cited information. Credit Derek with all this work.
