Notes. Some specimens of R. bicolor   had uniform colour of body (more or less brown) or are bicolored, but poorly contrasted. This type of specimens could be distinguished by having strongly prominent humeral calli; front and middle legs with stout tibiae and femora with semicircular, deep cavity before apex. Also, the shape of aedeagus and apex of female sternite VIII are characteristics within the genus.
