Remarks.

The coordinates in the original description were incorrectly recorded; latitude and longitude were swopped, and it should be 29°E instead of 39°S. Subsequent to the original description, at which time Rimula rhips  was only known by a single specimen, this species has been collected between 40 and 128 m deep up to Boteler Point, 27°01.1'S, 32°55.2'E, close to the border between South Africa and Mozambique.
