Abstract: Let $ f(z) = z + {a_2}{z^2} + \cdots $ be analytic in the unit disc $ U$ and let $ k(z) = z/(1 - z)$. The classic Marx-Strohhäcker result, that a convex (univalent) function $ f$ is starlike of order $ \frac{1}{2}$, can be written in terms of differential subordinations as

$\displaystyle zf''(z)/f'(z) \prec zk''(z)/k'(z) \Rightarrow zf'(z)/f(z) \prec zk'(z)/k(z).$

The authors determine general conditions on $ k$ for which this relation holds. They also determine a different set of general conditions on $ k$ for which

$\displaystyle zf'(z)/f(z) \prec zk'(z)/k(z) \Rightarrow f(z)/z \prec k(z)/z.$

Finally, differential subordinations with starlike superordinate functions are considered.
