Notes

Because of the flattened rim of the disk this species is rather similar to R. rochussenii. It is, however, distinguishable by the possession of the processes on the disk and by the very rudimentary ramenta, like those of R. patma. The remaining material in alcohol is very fragmentary and a good complete description is not possible.
