Sixteen solutions can be divided into four groups of related words. One entry from each group is highlighted by a * at the end of the clue.
If the groups are listed alphabetically, which four answers (totalling 21 letters) are in the last group?

Solvers should enter the four answers, and nothing else, in the answer box below.¬† There is no need to send a completed grid or solution, or to explain your answer. Closing date for entries is midnight on February 17th¬†2018. The winner will receive their choice of any of the Telegraph Crossword Books. In the event of two or more entries being received from the same solver all of these entries will be disqualified, except that mistakes can be corrected by using the box below and clearly requesting that the earlier entry be withdrawn. The winner will be drawn at random from the correct entries. Editor’s decision is final.

Please note that, due to punitive postal charges, while the competition is open to all, the prize is only available to UK solvers.

Feedback on puzzles is welcomed and will be passed on to setters. A review will be published after the closing date.
