According to the CoL (if I'm reading it correctly) Ceropegia circes is a synonym: http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

Found more
Apparently some of these are synonyms for Cereopegia species:
Ceropegia abayensis - http://www.catalogueoflife.org...
Ceropegia albocastanea - http://www.catalogueoflife.org...
Ceropegia araysiana - http://www.catalogueoflife.org...
Ceropegia baldratii subsp. baldratii - http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

There may be many more but this is as far as I've gotten. Green Grin!

Wow! Ceropegia is a voracious beast. It not only ate the entire Orbea genus, but also devoured seven other genera I've discovered so far. Orbea, Quaqua, Caralluma, Boucerosia, Desmidorchis, Caudanthera, Stapelia, and Apteranthes are no more. All have been absorbed by the Ceropegia genus, and there could be more.

What have I bitten off here? I've now found 22 more genera that have been reclassified as Ceropegia. That's 30 so far. Crying

Oh dear. That seems like quite an overhaul.
