An elliptical Hα nebula is observed. The very red colour and very high MIR luminosity points to an obscured RGB or AGB star with significant variability in the OGLE-III I- band lightcurve. The combination of nebula and obscured star make [RP2006] 264 an excellent symbiotic star candidate (Miszalski et al., 2011). Also suspected in Reid (2014).
