Abstract: Let $ \land $ be an artin algebra. This paper presents a sufficient condition for the subcategory $ \mathcal {P}^{i}( \land )$ of $\mod \land $ to be contravariantly finite in $\mod \land $, where $ \mathcal {P}^{i}( \land )$ is the subcategory of $\mod \land $ consisting of $ \land $--modules of projective dimension less than or equal to $i$. As an application of this condition it is shown that $ \mathcal {P}^{i}( \land )$ is contravariantly finite in $\mod \land $ for each $i$ when $ \land $ is stably equivalent to a hereditary algebra.
