Following the identification of the lowest-spin member of the two-phonon octupole quartet in [Formula Presented] the additional members of the multiplet have been sought with the [Formula Presented] reaction. Based on energy arguments and [Formula Presented] transition probabilities determined from Doppler-shift lifetime measurements, the 5286- and 5216-keV states are suggested as candidates for the [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] two-phonon octupole excitations in [Formula Presented] The difficulties of identifying the [Formula Presented] member of this quartet are examined.
