Two competing theories have been proposed to account for less mistaken identifications in the show up than in the six-person simultaneous lineup, diagnostic feature detection and filler siphoning. However, the former predicts that as lineups grow larger mistaken choices in lineups should decease, while the latter predicts that they should increase, while in fact the remain constant. The 48-person or even larger lineups should be given more attention.
