Fragments from ch. 1, 5, 7-11, 13-16, 19, 21 and 23 appear in Benedict of Aniane, Concordia Regularum. Some framgens appear as well in Smaragdus' Expositio Regularum, quoted from the Concordia Regularum.

An alleged fragment of the Regula Tarnatensis in Florecne, Biblioteca Laurentiana Plut.23.23, p. 204 is in fact a fragment from Augustine's Praeceptum. Click here for the catalogue entry.
