Abstract: This paper investigates the relationship between the p-length, $ {l_p}(G)$, of the finite p-solvable group G and the number, $ {a_p}(G)$, of orbits in which the subgroups of order p are permuted by the automorphism group of G. If $ p > 2$ and $ {a_p}(G) \leqq 2$, it is shown that $ {l_p}(G) \leqq {a_p}(G)$. If $ p = 2$ and $ {a_2}(G) = 1$, it is proved that either $ {l_p}(G) \leqq {a_p}(G)$ or $ G/{O_{2'}}(G)$ is a specific group of order 48.
