Abstract: The classification of the stable homotopy types of stunted lens spaces and their stable summands can be obtained by proving the triviality of certain stable classes in the homotopy groups of these spaces. This is achieved in the 2-primary case by Davis and Mahowald using classical Adams spectral sequence techniques. We obtain the odd primary analogue using the corresponding Adams spectral sequence based at the spectrum representing odd primary connective -theory. The methods allow us to answer a stronger problem: the determination of the smallest stunted space where such stable classes remain null homotopic. A technical problem prevents us from giving an answer in all situations; however, in a quantitative way, the number of cases missed is very small.
