Analysis of the gamma-ray energies of 28 excited superdeformed bands of lanthanon nuclei by application of the two-revolving-cluster model yields the result that the central sphere for all 28 has the semimagic-magic composition p40n50, with the range p8n12 to p14n18 for the clusters and the radius of revolution increasing from 7.31 to 7.76 fm. Similar analysis of 28 excited bands of Hg, Tl, and Pb nuclei leads to p56n82 (semimagic-magic) for the central sphere of 24 bands, p64n82 (semimagic-magic) for 2, and p64n90 (doubly semimagic) for 2, with cluster range p8n12 to p14n16 and values of the radius of revolution from 8.70 to 8.92 fm for 26 bands and 9.2 fm for 2.
