Hi I listed Ric Rac cactus (Epiphyllium Anguliger) for sale on Facebook. Another seller listed as (Crptocereus anthoyans Synonyn) they do have a little different look in the zag! My plant has smaller zag! I can only show my picture! A customer wait to know if it a Epiphyllium, too?

The Plant List is my go-to when I am trying to figure out what is what. According to it, they are not the same plant and in fact, Cryptocereus anthonyanus is an un-resolved name for Selenicereus anthonyanus:

Epiphyllum anguliger is an accepted name:

So two different plants that look similar.
