New data on resonances in the C12 + O16 system are presented. A systematic pattern is observed suggesting that theoretical models which have recently been formulated for the mechanism of resonances appearing in the C12 + C12 system also apply to this system. Furthermore, energies, spins, and widths for entrance-channel resonances predicted by a recent microscopic calculation of C12 + O16 scattering agree very well with the data presented here.
