An exotic meson, the with JPC=1-+, has been seen to decay into a p-wave system. If this decay conserves flavor SU(3), then it can be shown that this exotic meson must be a four-quark state ( ) belonging to a flavor representation of SU(3). In contrast, the with a substantial decay mode into is likely to be a member of a flavor octet.
