Theoretical considerations prompted by the discovery of the exotic [Formula Presented] led us to propose a dynamical picture emphasizing the role of diquark correlations, which are also useful in elucidating other aspects of low-energy QCD. A notable prediction of this picture is the existence of new exotic and nonexotic [Formula Presented] “cascade” baryons with specific, characteristic properties. We argue here that recent observations by the NA49 Collaboration are broadly consistent with our predictions, and propose further tests.
