Gurcharanji:
i vaguely remember that once upon a time kalanchoes were also called
sedum...

Alok ji
The two genera are very distinct. In that in Kalanchoe the flowers have a long corolla tube completely enclosing the fruit and flowers are 4-merous. In sedum the petals are free and usually 5-merous (4-merous is Rhodiola) but fruits are visible from top.
