We have continued our study of finite size effects in the QCD spectrum on lattices ranging in size from 83 × 24 to 163 × 24. We have increased our statistics for quark mass amq = 0.025 for the smallest lattice size. In addition, we have studied quark mass 0.0125 for lattice sizes 123 × 24 and 163 × 24. These lattice sizes correspond to a box 1.8-3.6 fm on a side when the rho mass at zero quark mass is used to set the scale. We discuss the nucleon to rho mass ratio at a smaller value of mπ/mρ{variant} than previously studied with two dynamical flavors.
