Maximum likelihood estimators of the parameters of nondecreasing pure-jump gamma and stable processes based on the jumps of size greater than or equal to ε were studied in a previous paper (Basawa & Brockwell, 1978). In particular, for a single realization X(u), 0 ⩽ u ⩽ t, the estimators for the stable process are consistent as $\varepsilon \downarrow 0$, but this is not so for the gamma process. In the present note we derive asymptotic distributions as $\varepsilon \downarrow 0$ for these estimators, centred and scaled as appropriate.
