By assuming the existence of a second octet with JP = 3 2- whose couplings are related via SU(6)W × O(3) to those of the established 3 2- "nonet", we reconcile recent measurements on the Σ(1385)π decay modes of the D03KN resonances with their other partial widths. The predicted properties of the third as yet unobserved D03 state raise important questions regarding the measurement of resonant parameters.
