A nearlattice is a meet semilattice in which every principal order ideal is a lattice. A skew nearlattice is a nearlattice with non-commutative meet operation. Such a nearlattice is called right normal (an rns-nearlattice, for short) if a weakened commutative law \(xyz=yxz\) holds. In this paper the structure of rns-nearlattices is characterized. Several representation theorems for these algebras are also given.
