Abstract: Let $ {\Delta '}$ be the class of all derivatives, and let $ [{\Delta '}]$ be the vector space generated by $ {\Delta '}$ and O'Malley's class $ B_1^{\ast}$. In [1] it is shown that every function in $ [{\Delta '}]$ is of the form $ {g'} + h{k'}$, where $ g,h$, and $ k$ are differentiable, and that $ f \in [{\Delta '}]$ if and only if there is a sequence of derivatives $ {v_n}$ and closed sets $ {A_n}$ such that $ \cup _{n = 1}^\infty {A_n} = {\mathbf{R}}$ and $ f = {v_n}$ on $ {A_n}$. The sequence of sets $ {A_n}$ together with the corresponding functions $ {v_n}$ is called a decomposition of $ f$. In this paper we show that every Peano derivative belongs to $ [{\Delta '}]$. Also we show that for Peano derivatives the sets $ {A_n}$ can be chosen to be perfect.
