    Opuntia, largest genus of the family Cactaceae, native to the New World, with some 200 species. It has characteristic glochidia—small bristles with backward-facing barbs in the areoles. (These barbs are difficult to remove from human skin.) The genus is divided into subgroups based on the form of the stem segments. Some Opuntia have cylindrical joints, called cholla; the remaining Opuntia are prickly pear, composed of flat joints, stem segments arising one from the end of another. Some botanists advocate dividing the two subgroups into separate genera.
