During a review of the various structures of uranium, one of us discovered indexing errors that affected a number of the investigations of the β allotrope. These errors have been corrected, and least-squares refinements performed in the three possible space groups, P4_2/mnm, P4_2nm, and P4n2, with resulting R_I values of 0.28, 0.24, and 0.28, respectively. It is concluded that the β-uranium powder data (Thewlis, 1952) cannot be used to determine the correct space group.
