general taxon notes:

Rhacopilopsis may be monospecific, found in both tropical America and Africa; however W. R. Buck (pers. comm.) believes that a careful review may result in the recognition of several species. The dimorphism exhibited between the larger upper median and asymmetric lateral leaves and the distinctly smaller ventral leaves, aid in the recognition of this genus.

Rhacopilopsis parece ser monoespecífico, se encuentra en América y África tropical; sin embargo según W. R. Buck (pers. comm.) una revisión cuidadosa puede resultar en el reconocimiento de varias especie. El dimorfismo presente en las hojas mediales superiores mayores y en las hojas laterales asimétricas y las hojas ventrales conspicuamente menores, ayudan a reconocer este género.
