Abstract: We show that there are no non-trivial closable derivations of a $C^{*}$-algebra anticommuting with an ergodic action of a compact group, supposing that the set of squares is dense in the group. We also show that there are no non-trivial closable densely defined rank one derivations on any $C^{*}$-algebra.
