A group \(H\) is called a finite extension of its subgroup \(K\) if the index \([H:K]\) is finite. A reductive linear group \(G\subseteq\text{GL}(U)\) is called co-regular if the algebra \(k[U]^G\) is regular, i.e., it is generated by a system of algebraically independent elements. \(G\) is said to be quasi-co-regular if it admits a finite co-regular extension. A homomorphism \(\rho:G\to\text{GL}(V)\) is said to be co-regular (resp. quasi-co-regular) if its image is co-regular (resp. quasi-co-regular). Apart from three possible exceptions, the author gives a list of all quasi-co-regular but not co-regular connected simple linear groups, and for each such group, a list of all its co-regular finite extensions.
