Abstract: Examples are given of a non-quasi-well behaved closed * derivation in $ C([0,1] \times [0,1])$ extending the partial derivative, and of a compact subset $ \Omega $ of the plane such that $ C(\Omega )$ has no nonzero quasi-well behaved * derivations but $ C(\Omega )$ does admit nonzero closed * derivations.
