Abstract: Let $ G$ be a connected reductive group over an algebraically closed field of characteristic $ p$. In an earlier paper we defined a surjective map $ \Phi _{p}$ from the set $ \underline {W}$ of conjugacy classes in the Weyl group $ W$ to the set of unipotent classes in $ G$. Here we prove three results for $ \Phi _{p}$. First we show that $ \Phi _{p}$ has a canonical one-sided inverse. Next we show that $ \Phi _{0}=r\Phi _{p}$ for a unique map $ r$. Finally, we construct a natural surjective map from $ \underline {W}$ to the set of special representations of $ W$ which is the composition of $ \Phi _{0}$ with another natural map and we show that this map depends only on the Coxeter group structure of $ W$.
