Transition energies of 25 superdeformed (SD) bands in 13 nuclei of the A=194 region were fitted by the power-series expansion of I in odd powers of E/2, Latin small letter h with stroke(I+1/2)=2+4/33, where E/2=Latin small letter h with stroke, and by the expression for transition energy, E=E(I+2)-E(I), where E(I)=AI(I+1) +B[I(I+1)]2+C[I(I+1)]3. Results are generally similar, and level spins for these SD bands are given based on expectations of rotational model behavior.
