R with tail

, ɽ is a letter of the Latin alphabet, derived from R with the addition of a tail. Its capital form may be based on either the uppercase or lowercase R.

The lowercase (ɽ) was added to Unicode since Unicode 1.0 while the uppercase (Ɽ) has only been added since Unicode 5.0.

Ɽ is also used in the alphabets of several Sudanese languages, including Heiban, Koalib, Moro and Otoro. It is placed after R in alphabetical order.
