The potential-energy-surface has been calculated using a method developed in a previous paper. Two regions of relative stability against spontaneous fission aroundZ=114 andZ=164 are discussed in greater detail. The stability of the quasistable elements against fission is discussed and the stability against alpha- and beta-decay is estimated by using the mass formula of Myers-Swiatecki. It is found that quasistable elements should exist in the regions aroundZ=114 andZ=164.
