Van der Hammen and Garcia 1966Diporate, micro-reticulate. Pores without annulus, sometimes slightly elongate, simulating short colpi. Diameter of the pores up to ± 10 μ. The lumina of the reticulum are smaller than 1 μ. Muri relatively wide. Thickness of the exine 1-1.5 μ. The size varies between ± 30 and 40 μ long and ± 20 and 30 μ wide. Frequently one side is more convex than the other. This species is related to R. bengalensis Varma & Rawat.
