Well, if Rihana-ye <lh> is the lateral voiceless fricative spelled <ll> in
Welsh, and <tl> is the corresponding affricate also spelled <tl> in
Aztec transcription (e.g. <tetl> "egg") and spelled <tlh> in Klingon,
then they ARE on the chart, at least the version linked from
conlanglinks.tk.  Look on the sixth row of the Pulmonic Consonants
chart, "Lateral Fricative", in the Dental/Alveolar/Postalveolar column.
The IPA is /ɬ/ for the fricative and /t⁀ɬ/ for the fricative;
the X-SAMPA equivalents are /K/ and /t_K/.
