Derived from Greek, its name refers to something winged, indicating, according to some opinions, the particular shape of its seeds. These are often geophytic cacti, which halve their volume during vegetative rest and "hide" underground to protect themselves from unfavorable seasons. They remain small in size, tending rather to cluster, creating spontaneously a characteristic composition of small cylindrical cacti with very varied spines, depending on the species.
