Suppose that A is a finite set-system on N points, and for everytwo different A, A′ε{lunate} A we have |A∩A′|=0 or r. Then we prove that |A≤ ⌊ N r⌋ 2+⌊ N r⌋+(N-r⌊ N r⌋) whenever N>N0(r). The extremal family is unique and consists of 2r, r and 1-elements sets only. The assumption N>N0(r) can not be omitted. We state some further results and problems.
