Results concerning consonant approximations are available in the literature only for the case of belief functions. This paper investigates the extension of consonant approximations to the case of capacities, which feature less specific properties and can be considered as the most general family of set measures suitable to uncertainty representation. It is shown that existing results for belief functions can be properly extended. In the meanwhile, some imprecisions in the previous literature are pointed out and corrected.
