The method of determining the tensor distinction of domains resulting from non-ferroelastic phase transitions from a high symmetry phase of symmetry G to a low symmetry phase of symmetry F of index n = 2 in G (V. Janovec, L. Richterova, and D.B. Litvin, Ferroelectrics 40, 95 (1993)) is extended to the general case of index n > 2. For all cases where n > 2, a tabulation is given of important physical property tensors which can distinguish between domains. This includes both physical property tensors associated with a primary order parameter which can distinguish between all domains, and those associated with secondary order parameters which can distinguish between some but not all domains.
