1. The type material of fluor-liddicoatite (originally described as liddicoatite, Dunn et al., 1977) was found in soils somewhere near Antsirabé city. The exact locality is not known. It may be some of the LCT pegmatites in the Sahatany Pegmatite Field about 25 km SW of Antsirabe city, or the famous Anjanabonoina or nearby pegmatites.

2. Scandian ixiolite was also reported by von Knorring & Sahama (1969) from an undisclosed locality near Antsirabe. The exact locality is not known. It may be one of the pegmatites in the Sahatany Pegmatite Field
