It appears that's there because it used to be a genus name, which has
apparently since been subdivided.
Wikipedia shows enough things named Cactus to leave it, though, so
I'll just add a lowercase version.
(software using the file should not be implicitly lowercasing words,
so both should be present when appropriate)
