I spent a lot of time searching floral formulas and inflorescence types of these succulents: Rebutia pseudodeminuta, Melocactus matanzanus , Lewisia (longipetala), Anacampseros (rufescens), Euphorbia pentagona, Adenia (hastata).

But i didn't find anything about that. I'm starting to be desperate.
Can someone help me?

Welcome!

I don't understand the question. Confused What are you attempting to do?

BTW, some of the plants you listed are considered cactus, not succulents. Does that make a difference?

Yes, you're right. Its the other way around. Still don't know what the question is though.

There's a code used as shorthand to describe flowers and the number of parts they have (the so-called floral formula) but that's specialist knowledge beyond me.

For what it's worth, the Euphorbia makes an incomplete floral structure called a cyathium.
