The relation between the additive quantum numbers of the W-spin operators and the multiplicative quantum numbers of reflection in a plane is discussed. We find two types of W-spin selection rules: those that are identical to the selection rules that come from the general principle of reflection invariance, and those that form new additional restrictions. The implications of the latter group for the baryons and mesons are discussed.
