Tromotriche revoluta is a species of the genus Tromotriche within the Asclepiadaceae family. This family includes plants that have some very interesting flowers. This species occurs in the arid western winter rainfall area of the Northern Cape, particularly in districts like Clanwilliam and Lutzville. The tigrida variation with the maroon and light yellow stripes is not considered separate from this form by all the expert commentators. They also used to call this plant Stapelia revoluta at some stage in the past (www.asclepiad-exhibition.org).
