Cobia 1992: 35; McM&H 1995: 133phylloclade width 2.5–2.9 cm., length 4.8–5.6 cm. 'Madame Butterfly' is an early season bloomer. Pod parent was recorded by McM&H as 'White Christmas'. This is questionable since 'White Christmas' is reported to be pod sterile. M.E. Cobia stated Madame Butterfly's parentage as S. orssichiana x Zygocactus truncatus 'White Christmas', which is the plausible parentage.
