I was browsing our database listings for Genus Pilosocereus ... which got me comparing to those listed at the Catalogue of Life. I found a few in our database that may need attention. I'm not sure what scientific publication is accurate anymore or which is most trusted but the CoL page shows a date of August 25, 2017 so I'm assuming these are accurate. I don't mean to create additional work for our terrific administrators so please disregard if this is a non issue.

My cactus reference (Anderson, 2001) confirms the first few synonyms. Give me some time and I can check the other ones.

These are done now. Your remaining links are three names that were tweaked to correct the spelling, two names you didn't find in the CoL, but they were there, and one entry in which the accepted name was added to the earlier entry and the earlier name was reclassified as a synonym.
