Fabulous Lithops site, with a vast number of photographs. I have not checked but it looks like every Cole Numbered plant is illustrated. A German site with English translation pages. Plants also categorised by Flower size, Name, Cole Number, Name with Cole Number. Also available is a downloadable file containing all the Locality Data for Cole numbered plants.
Links to other sites, Lithops books and a list of cultivars complete this very comprehensive site for Lithops lovers.
