The identification of problematic meson states as the members of the quark model qq̄ nonets by using a hadronic resonance spectrum is discussed. The results favor the currently adopted qq̄ assignments for the tensor and 1 3F4 JPC = 4++ meson nonets, and suggest a new qq̄ assignments for the scalar and axial-vector nonets which favor the interpretation of the f0(980), f0(1710) and f1(1510) mesons as non-qq̄ objects. We also suggest that the 2 3S1 1/2(1-) state should be identified with the K* (1680) rather than K* (1410) meson.
