The Adromischus Handbook
Tölken's Revision in Bothalia 1978
Bothalia is a South African journal devoted to botanical science, published by the
SANBI in Pretoria. H. R. Tölken published a revision of Adromischus (and a new genus Tylecodon), as a precursor to the FSA, in Bothalia 12:3 pp. 377-393 (1978).

It contains an interesting discussion about sections and the importance of floral characters.

Tölken's Review in Flora of Southern Africa (FSA) 1985
In Vol. 14 (hard- or soft-back), H. R. Tölken reviews the Crassulaceae in southern Africa, published by
SANBI. It provides two keys for Adromischus: one based on vegetative material and another on complete material.
