Abstract

We present W-spin selection rules which prohibit many resonances having high isospin and hypercharge from displaying dominant two-body decay modes, appearing as bumps in meson-baryon scattering cross sections, or being produced by simple peripheral meson exchange. Thus, present experimental evidence against the existence of these states is inconclusive, and a search for more complicated production mechanisms and decay modes is suggested.
