Excited states of 34Si were studied in the 2H( 34Si, 34Siγ) reaction using a radioactive 34Si beam at 38.4A MeV and a liquid deuterium target. Deexcitation γ rays were measured using a NaI(Tl)-scintillator array in coincidence with scattered 34Si particles. From γ-γ coincidence analyses, the γ lines at 1.193, 1.715, and 2.696 MeV, which were reported previously but unplaced in the level diagram, were found to be associated with the 3.326-MeV γ line corresponding to the transition from the first 2 + state to the ground state. This excludes the 1.193-MeV line as a candidate for the transition from the 2+ state to the second 0 + state, as suggested by Nummela et al. [Phys. Rev. C 63, 044316 (2001)].
