Recently the first sample of red low surface brightness galaxies was found. It can be seen that these galaxies have similar properties to their blue counterparts, including both high and low gas mass-to-luminosity fractions, central surface brightnesses, etc. In this poster we present recent results of our studies of these enigmatic systems, including neutral hydrogen content and multi-band photometry. We also discuss the recent discovery that one of the presumed red LSB galaxies may in fact be the central galaxy in a distant (z = 0.21) galaxy group.
