1995 South African Journal of Botany  
The generic delimitation of Tridentea Haw. and Tromotriche Haw. is considered. Eight species are retained in Tddentea: T dwequensis (LOckhort) Leach, T gemminora ( Masson) Haw., T jucunda (N.E. Br.) Leach, T pachyrrhiza (Dinter) Leach , T parvipuncta (N.E. Br.) Leach, T marientalensis (Nel) Leach and T virescens (N.E. Br.) Leach. The remaining species are transferred to Tromotriche. Tromotriche eng/ariana (Schltr.) Leach is referred back to Stapelia as Stapelia eng/eriana SchUr. Tromotriche

Tromotriche then consists of the following 11 species: T. aperta (Masson) Sweet, T baylissit' (Leach) Bruyns, T choanantha (Lavranos & Hall ) Bruyns, T herrei (Nel) Bruyns, T longii (LOckhort) Bruyns, T longipes (LOckhof0 Bruyns, T pedunculata (Masson) Bruyns , T revoluta (Masson) Haw., T ruschiana (Dinter) Bruyns, T thudichumii (pillans) Leach and T. umdausensis (Nel) Bruyns. Careful arguments are advanced to justify these changes. Die generiese begrensing va n Tridentea Haw. en Tromotriche Haw. is oorweeg. Agt spesies is behou in Tridentea, naamlik T dwequensis (LOckhoff) Leach , T gemmifiora (Masson) Haw., T jucunda (N. E. Br.) Leach, T pachyrrhiza (Dinter) Leach, T parvipuncta (N.E . Br.) Leach, T marientalensis (Nel) Leach en T virescens (N, E . Br.) Leach. Die oorblywende spesies is oorgeplaas na Tromotriche. Tromotriche eng/eriana (Schltr.) Leach is terug verander na Slapelia as Stapelia eng/eriana SchUr. Tromotriche bestaan dan uit die volgende 11 spesies: T. aperta (Masson) Sweet, T baylissii (Leach) Bruyns, T. choanantha (Lavranos & Hall) Bruyns, T herrei (Nel) Bruyns, T longii (LQckhoH) Bruyns, T. longipes (Luckhoff) Bruyns, T. pedunculata (Masson) Bruyns, T. revo/uta (Masson) Haw., T. ruschiana (Dinter) Bruyns, T. lhudichumii (Pillans) Leach en T. umdausensis (Nel) 8ruyns. Die motive ring vir hierdie veranderings word aangebied.
