Section 4 (page 11) says:

   An example of a flow specification encoding for: "all packets to
   10.0.1/24 from 192/8 and port {range [137, 139] or 8080}".

   +------------------+----------+-------------------------+
   | destination      | source   | port                    |
   +------------------+----------+-------------------------+
   | 0x01 18 0a 01 01 | 02 08 c0 | 04 03 89 45 8b 91 1f 90 |
   +------------------+----------+-------------------------+

It should say:

   An example of a flow specification encoding for: "all packets to
   10.1.1/24 from 192/8 and port {range [137, 139] or 8080}".

   +------------------+----------+-------------------------+
   | destination      | source   | port                    |
   +------------------+----------+-------------------------+
   | 0x01 18 0a 01 01 | 02 08 c0 | 04 03 89 45 8b 91 1f 90 |
   +------------------+----------+-------------------------+

OR:

   An example of a flow specification encoding for: "all packets to
   10.0.1/24 from 192/8 and port {range [137, 139] or 8080}".

   +------------------+----------+-------------------------+
   | destination      | source   | port                    |
   +------------------+----------+-------------------------+
   | 0x01 18 0a 00 01 | 02 08 c0 | 04 03 89 45 8b 91 1f 90 |
   +------------------+----------+-------------------------+

Notes:

The prefix stated in the text, does not match the one encoded in the example.

10.0.1/24 should be 10.1.1/24 to match the example, or alternatively the example should change from:
0x01 18 0a 01 01
to:
0x01 18 0a 00 01
