Note from Bradleya 13
This form has somewhat angular or swollen and bristly ultimate stem-segments.
It is particularly common near the coast (ter¬restrial in sand of
the restinga, also epilithic and epiphytic) and there takes on the appear¬ance
of R. cereuscula, with which it has been in part confused by
Scheinvar (1985: 262).
