Meier 1995: E.B. Hoare Notes: B1-8large, thick, flat mid green phylloclades, devoid of lateral bristles, pronounced center mid rib. Segments average 5 cm. in length and 2 cm. in width with 3 - 5 areoles per side in small crenations. Linear areole is half round with only faint bristles. Plant was obtained by Des Ellery from Betty Winton. Meier references this one as a pseudonym of R. 'Brazillia', but the two differ in filament coloration and flower size (Lee Goodfellow).
