Abstract: All finite 2-groups G with the following property are classified: Property. The Frattini subgroup of G contains an abelian subgroup of rank 3, but G contains no normal abelian subgroup of rank 3.

The method of classification involves showing that if G is such a group, then G contains a normal abelian subgroup W isomorphic to $ {Z_4} \times {Z_4}$, and that the centralizer C of W in G has an uncomplicated structure. The groups with the above property are then constructed as extensions of C.
