Abstract: In this paper, we discuss the impact of the recent Belle result on the various theoretical explanations of the RD and RD* anomalies. The pure tensor explanation, which was strongly disfavored by the measurements of FLD* and high-pT ppτν searches before Moriond, is now completely allowed because of the reduction of the experimental world average. Moreover, the pure right-chiral vector solution (involving right-chiral neutrinos) has now moved into the 2σ allowed range of the LHC ppτν searches. We also critically reexamine the bound on B(Bcτν¯τ) from large electron-positron collider data and show that the bound is considerably weaker than the number 10% often used in the recent literature.
