## Abstract

In the second edition of the congruence lattice book, Problem 22.1 asks for a characterization of subsets *Q* of a finite distributive lattice *D* such that there is a finite lattice *L* whose congruence lattice is isomorphic to *D* and under this isomorphism *Q* corresponds the the principal congruences of *L*. In this note, we prove some preliminary results.
