Submillimetre HCO [FORMULA] mapping observations of the immediate environs of the infrared source IRS 7 in Corona Australis have provided corroborative evidence for the existence of the rotating molecular disk detailed in our earlier paper. An improved estimate of 0.8 M [FORMULA] for the mass of the central protostar is obtained.

Key words: stars: formation – stars: individual: R CrA IRS 7 – ISM: jets and outflows – ISM: kinematics and dynamics – radio lines: ISM

* Based on observations collected at the European Southern Observatory, La Silla, Chile
