The pair $(G, \psi)$ is called a graphoidally covered graph and the paths in $\psi$ are called the $\psi$-edges of $G$. In a graphoidally covered graph $(G, \psi)$, two distinct vertices $u$ and $v$ are $\psi$-adjacent if they are the ends of an open $\psi$-edge. A graphoidally covered graph $(G, \psi)$ in which no two distinct vertices are $\psi$-adjacent is called $\psi$-independent and the graphoidal cover $\psi$ is called a totally disconnecting graphoidal cover of $G$. Further, a graph possessing a totally disconnecting graphoidal cover is called a graphoidally independent graph. The aim of this paper is to establish complete characterization of graphoidally independent infinite cactus.http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_14473_5e7ec1a2240a429fa913452fe0df7e76.pdf
