In  we initiated our study of the automorphism groups of a certain class of near-rings. Specifically, let P be any complex polynomial and let P denote the near-ring of all continuous selfmaps of the complex plane where addition of functions is pointwise and the product fg of two functions f and g in P is defined by fg=f∘P∘g. The near-ring P is referred to as a laminated near-ring with laminating element P. In , we characterised those polynomials P(z)=anzn + an−1zn−1 +…+a0 for which Aut P is a finite group. We are able to show that Aut P is finite if and only if Deg P≧3 and ai ≠ 0 for some i ≠ 0, n. In addition, we were able to completely determine those infinite groups which occur as automorphism groups of the near-rings P. There are exactly three of them. One is GL(2) the full linear group of all real 2×2 nonsingular matrices and the other two are subgroups of GL(2). In this paper, we begin our study of the finite automorphism groups of the near-rings P. We get a result which, in contrast to the situation for the infinite automorphism groups, shows that infinitely many finite groups occur as automorphism groups of the near-rings under consideration. In addition to this and other results, we completely determine Aut P when the coefficients of P are real and Deg P = 3 or 4.
