Abstract: The number of conjugate sets of irreducible congruences of degree $ m$ belonging to $ GF(p),p > 2$, relative to the group $ G$ of linear fractional transformations with coefficients belonging to the same field has been determined for $ m \leqq 8$. In this paper the irreducible congruences of prime power degree $ {q^\alpha },q > 2$, are considered and the number of conjugate sets relative to $ G$ is determined.
