"recto" means back or rear view. It has nothing to do with the chainring.

151 BCD track rings will fit older (late 50's to early 70's) Campagnolo Pista cranks. They use a 1/8th chain and also come in skip tooth.

I always thought that was "retro". Doesn't "recto" mean "on the right" or "pertaining to the rectum".
