In a recent paper (Lewis et al 2010 Nanotechnology 21 45502) proposed a previously unidentified gap state within lead sulfide nanocrystals (PbS-NCs) based on analysis of their temperature dependent optical properties. In the following we argue that due to oversights in the analysis of the data presented, inconsistencies arise which question their exclusion of 'dark' excitonic states as the origin of the observed effects.
