We characterize positive quadratic hyponormality of the weighted shift W-alpha(x) associated to the weight sequence alpha(x) : 1, 1, root x, (root u, root v, root w)(Lambda) with Stampfli recursive tail, and produce an interval in x with non-empty interior in the positive real line for quadratic hyponormality but not positive quadratic hyponormality for such a shift.
