The only mention of this on Wikipedia, Battle of Milne Bay, says it was commanded by Mitsuharu Matsuyama. But the Wikipedia page on him only lists the 18th Battle Corps (which he would have been commanding at the time of Milne Bay). Japanese sources give this as 第１８戦隊, which is closer to "battle corps".

- This could be a misinterpretation during translation or US Navy terminology used by American and Australian sources. I also refer to combined fleet entry and wikipedia entries for Tatsuta and Tenryū which indicate the ships were part of CruDiv 18. Regards Newm30 (talk) 04:44, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
Disbandment date wrong?
The source given in the article (this) only says that the unit was deactivated. Meanwhile, this page gives the disbandment date as ten days later. Perhaps this should be changed? Or am I misreading these two sources?2601:645:102:FAE0:40F9:87BF:D626:3648 (talk) 04:35, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
