UBV photometry of R CrB on 99 nights during 1988 is presented. The star was close to maximum light during these five months and showed its usual small variability of about 0.2 mag in V. However, a period analysis reveals no sign of the customary 44 d period; instead, periods of about 59 d , 31 d , and possibly 23 d were present. A brief discussion is given.
