It is shown, with the help of exact diagonalization studies on systems with up to 16 electrons, in the presence of up to two delta function impurities, that the Pfaffian model is not accurate for the actual quasiholes and quasiparticles of the 52 fractional quantum Hall effect. Implications for non-Abelian statistics are discussed.
