Abstract A sufficient condition for the symplecticness ofq-derivative Runge-Kutta methods has been derived by F. M. Lasagni. In the present note we prove that this condition can only be satisfied for methods with q<=1, i.e., for standard Runge-Kutta methods. We further show that the conditions of Lasagni are also necessary for symplecticness so that no symplectic multi-derivative Runge-Kutta method can exist.
