## Abstract

A detailed classification is made of all orthogonal coordinate systems for which the wave equation ψ - Δ_{3}ψ = 0 admits an R-separable solution. Only those coordinate systems are given which are not conformally equivalent to coordinate systems that have already been found in previous articles. We find 106 coordinates to given a total of 368 conformally inequivalent orthogonal coordinates for which the wave equation admits an R separation of variables.
