Ausdley and Irwin define the German names as denoting a Rohrflöte at 5-1/3' pitch, though Osiris contains as many examples at 2-2/3' as at 5-1/3', as well as nearly as many examples at 10-2/3'. The name Rohrquinte has also been used as a synonym for Rohrnasat. This is a very old stop; the earliest known example dates from 1646 (see below).
No examples of Rohrflötquint or Rohrflötenquinte are known. Contributions welcome.

Rohrquinte 5-1/3', Pedal; Merseburg Cathedral, Merseburg, Germany; Ladegast 1853-55. (This stop was originally part of an older instrument.)
